The leaves begin to fall, landing here there and everywhere.

Gorgeous colours appear. Daylight disappears, and it will soon be time to change the clocks back an hour, meaning it gets darker earlier so the days seem shorter.

The moon is on its way to being a full moon.

There were beautiful sunsets, but also lots of cloudy days and those days are getting cooler and cooler.

The honeysuckle vine in the trellis garden has just about lost all its leaves.

The bridge garden, newly created this year, is getting covered in fallen leaves which will help the plants survive over the winter, and start to decompose into the soil, eventually making it ricer.

And then along comes October 27, and guess what?

It started to snow.

First it was just wet stuff but after awhile it settled on the ground.

The first snow is always magical to watch and of course photograph.

I’m sure it caught lots of people off guard. Thank goodness it was all gone by the next day.

The moon looked rather spooky with a coloured aura around it.

The month finished very chilly but sunny. Remember to set your clocks back an hour tonight.

Our garden is in south eastern Ontario, Canada close to the Bay of Quinte.

2020 has been such an usual year so far, so who knows what will happen next.

    Beautiful moon! the garden looks so pretty in the snow, it’s always lovely to see the first snow of the season we had very little last year and I’m hoping we have very little this year too. x

    Your garden looks so cozy and pretty! I enjoyed your photos a lot, especially the fuzzy clouds. And, first snow falls are pretty, too :)

    It’s great to see your link at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week !!

      Thanks for stopping by. First snow is always so lovely, and I’m glad it only lasted a day. I’ve been enjoying some lovely days in the garden while the weather is a bit milder.

    When you said snow, I had to look up where you live, although it has already snowed in places in the United States also. We usually don’t see any snow here until after Christmas. Lovely post of little happenings in your gardens.

      I did go back and add a location. We live in Ontario, Canada close to the Bay of Quinte, so this was early snow for us, and I’m so glad it only lasted a day. There will be lots more once winter sets in. Enjoy the day.

    The extreme weather that we experience in our country never ceases to amaze me. Last night, some areas got hit by a snowstorm. Later this week, the temperatures are supposed to hit the high teens!

      I saw that some areas had snow, thankfully not us this time. The nice temperatures are here for the end of this week, so getting outside and enjoying i while we can.

      I’m so glad the snow only lasted that one day Joy, I’m not ready for it yet. It has been nice this couple of days so I’ve been able to get out and enjoy the garden for a bit longer.

    The snow is beautiful but I enjoyed the spooky moon picture the best. I am not ready for snow and winter yet.
