Hollywood snow.

The first real snow of the season transformed the park into a movie set. The snow began as rain, and once everything was soaked, the air turned colder and helped by a stiff breeze, snow snow attached itself as if it had come from a machine. Here’s a couple of before pictures:

Beautiful browns.

With wet snow clinging to the grass, it bends and flattens to begin the mulching and seeding process.

Snow can be a heavy blanket. While this snow will not last, the next snowfalls will continue the flattening process so that by springtime, there will be little trace of the previous year’s plants.
