Seattle’s first snow of the season ❄️☃️ Snow isn’t that common here and city tends to slow or even shut down with mere inches of snow. So, schools are still closed. And I started this morning with thawing nectar in the hummingbird’s feeders 🙃
If you are curious, below are some interesting facts about Seattle’s snow:
The most snow that Seattle has ever had was 64 inches. This record was made back in 1880. Usually, however, the average is about five inches of snow every season. In some years they don’t get any snow. Other notable snow seasons include the 21.4 inches back in 1950 and the 21.5 inches in 1916. Getting snow of this amount is really rare in Seattle.
I am just back from walking and so enjoyed sun and snow ❄️ What is your weather today?😉

I love coral with all its shades and how elegant it look with traditional white/blacks/grays. But oh my, just look how fresh and happy are combinations of coral with mint, aqua and greens! Below are my most favorited:
Not to mention that it’s a flattering color for lots of different skin tones, so I’m really excited about this Color of the Year! And found fantastic yarn in some exciting coral shades 😉
What is your relationship with coral❓

Thank you so much Sergey!! You are the BEST! 🔥
