A Second Look--November 26, 2014

We're preparing for the first snow today and depending on where you live, they are calling for a couple of inches to a foot. However before this, we were treated to a lovely weekend in the 60's when we took the opportunity to do some yard work. However, it was less successful than I had anticipated because the ground was still frozen hard. All I hope for in this fluctuating weather is that it is safe to travel early Thanksgiving day when we are taking a seven hour trip for a family filled holiday.

Here's what I saw this week 
during a Second Look.

Despite the cold weather, the volunteer petunia has not totally died yet.

However, the cold weather has rendered these hosta leaves translucent.

All that are left of the balloon flowers are their seed pods.

Even though they are wilted, the mums are still adding a bit of color to the landscape.

 This woolly worm was frozen hard. I assume that this is just part of its winter hibernation.
