First Frost


We had our first frost last night, scattered though it was. Our home is down at the end of a cul-de-sac, the lowest-in-altitude house on the block. My glorious morning glories, (though the blooms are getting smaller the colder it becomes), were in full bloom this morning. The neighbor's lawn just a house up and about 20 feet higher was covered with frost. My thermometer read 41 degrees. Two miles away where I work, 32 degrees. The above photo is of the frost-touched ground-creeping evergreen I saw in the parking lot. Amazing how much the temps can fluctuate!

Snippet from the nurses's office: 

"My ear hurts." 
"How long has it been hurting?"
"20 years."
"Um, you're only 7 years old."
"So?"

expect anything!


a quite wonderful new meme, is  premiering today!
The goal of this is to share some of our personal corners of 
the world with others. What a grand idea!
While my entry is a very small slice of the world I inhabit, 
my corner it is, both photo and words.

  13. Was that a conversation between said 7 year old and you or Nurse N?

    Frost is my friend - it means the end of ragweed season and the end of fall allergy suffering for my poor pooch.

  14. Frost gathers in a hollow as, on a still night the cooler the air, the heavyer it gets and gently gravitates into a depression.The operative tempreture for frost is at or near ground level.
    Whatever, it looks so pretty and I love it too.

  15. That time of year again, huh? A very nice detail shot! (Fortunately) I don't have to encounter frost down here in FL - and if - only for a day or two.
    Cheers, Klaus

  23. Love the photo. They're calling for a possible frost for us later this week. I sort of dread the loss of greenery and the months ahead of brown.
