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!
