First snow fall of the year

What a wonderful sight to wake up to, snow on the ground. A nice way to start a Sunday morning. I went out to the garden to snap a couple of pictures and got a few nice ones. especially this one of a snow covered Primula, that was flowering in the nice mild weather we had been having up until now.

This photo got me thinking about my personal preferences as a photographer and realised I tend to process a large number of my images as Black & White. Is it just me or does the Black & White version of this image look much nicer?
