First Snow: Pleasures of a Small City

It snowed this morning.

View from our third floor library.

The back garden.
The front garden.

I went for a walk.

St. George's Cathedral from Wellington Street.

I did some shopping at the City Market.
Apples for sale, 





and apple cider.

juniper,

winterberry,
garlic,

and maple sugar candies.
I walked back home via King Street East and the sun came out and started to melt the snow that had accumulated on the steps of the Victorian row houses.

Back home for roast beef sandwiches, tomato soup, 
 
 and knitting!

  1. Thanks for sharing this first snow! You definitely captured a little bit of the magic, which I haven't felt in years living in California.

    1. Alas, the magic fades fast, and by February, we'd all pay to get rid of the white stuff. For now though, it's a shot of excitement and anticipation.
