So much for autumn this year. Last night after the heavy rains subsided, the snow started. Woke up to 2 inches coating everything. With all the leaves still on the trees (indeed, we are probably only at half fall color here), some plants are hurt. Hopefully, the apple branches that are touching the ground will recover. Ditto, the hydrangeas, spireas, lilacs, etc. ACK! We are in the northern Catskills. This is early for us!
