Early in the year, I mean, for snow.
Because this morning I woke up to find the view from my kitchen window like this:
And now, two hours later, it looks like this:
Dear me, isn't winter long enough already without it starting to snow at the end of October?!
According to the forecast, it'll warm up again a bit by the middle of next week; at the moment, it is 0 Celsius (32 F) out there, and should get back up to somewhere around 7 or 8 Celsius (46 F) on Wednesday, which will put an end to any snow that might still be around by then.
I'd much rather enjoy another three or four weeks of Golden October!
Anyway, if it is anything like this where you are, and you have started thinking about getting some nice presents for your loved ones (or for yourself), individual and useful at the same time, you are very welcome to browse my Mum's Etsy shop for her hand-knitted socks and woolly hats - she also does requests, if you can't find the colour, shape or size you are looking for :-) The pictures on the top left corner of my blog take you there.
Addendum: My Mum sent me a set of pictures, taken today on her balcony, where until yesterday, the beautiful autumn flowers were still basking in the autumn sun: When I wanted to upload it just now, I had once again the message about me having run out of space... This comes up every now and then, but usually, a day or two later, everything is back to normal and I can upload pictures again without having made any changes.
Addendum II: A smaller version of the pictures worked fine this morning:
