This is a dead hydrangea. I was still alive about a month ago, but now all the blooms have died. Mom plans on cutting it back soon, which means removing the dead blooms.
Dad likes to pay Alex (as he used to pay us when we were kids) to pick up the massive amount of gumballs that cover the yard. They missed this one, but there aren't many left.
After 1pm, we headed over to John's parents' house for more festivities. The sky was overcast, but not thick enough that you could not see the sun. Later, it snowed...which we will get to in a moment.
The snow was still falling as we were leaving. This is snow collected on the front passenger side window.
By the time we got home, the blanket of snow was thick. I figured I would photograph some snow covered plants just in case there is a freak thing and there is no snow in the morning...that is doubtful.
This is a Rhododendron.
