Snow!

I know that most of you think "Snow? In Canada? Tell us something we don't know..." But in fact what many of you don't realize is that snow in my part of Canada is very unusual. Ours is described as a "mediterranean" climate; for gardeners, we're zone 8, which means we can grow palm trees when the ROC (rest of Canada) has trouble growing roses. So when it snows, particularly before Christmas, it's exciting.

There's only a dusting, but it's falling softly outside as I write. The dogs may be able to have a snowball fight later.
