Winter Finally Arrived!

Well, I knew the mild weather we've had so far was too good to last. Until today, we hadn't even had a hard freeze. Now we have!

Here's the lower garden...



...and the upper garden.



And for a couple of touristic pictures, the Bosphorus, with the Bosphorus Bridge,




and the Ortaköy Mosque.

I would have never thought it would snow in Istanbul. Nice pictures!

Looks like time for a good hot soup.

It does snow, almost every year. But it's a city of microclimates, almost as much as S.Francisco is, so often high areas will get it while down by the water it doesn't stick - sometimes it's not even snow any more by the time it gets to our low elevation.
