October Snow

The October weather has been so unpredictable this year. One day it's cold and windy, the next day brings a monsoon rain and the next is as warm as an August day. Imagine my surprise when I arrived at Catch Meadow Cottage yesterday to see it SNOWING in the meadow... 

At least that's what I thought when I first saw it, then I realized that it was just a milkweed snow.

The air was completely filled with puffy white milkweed feathers that eventually floated down 
and covered the ground like a soft, downy blanket.

Milkweed is truly a beautiful plant from spring to autumn. I am discovering so many uses for it.

Even the bluebirds took a moment to enjoy watching the snow fly. 
They stopped at their house yesterday just to bid farewell as they head down South for the winter. 

See you next spring!
