Well, it wasn’t really much of a frost and I think we may have to put off declaring a “State of Emergency” for a day or two.
There was some frost on the little things.
Frost can be quite destructive and Spindle berries were dropping off the tree as I was trying to photograph them.
A few of the remaining flowers were totally frosted and I don’t think that they will last much longer.
It feels a bit like we are saying goodbye to the colours of Autumn and hello to the greyness that is Winter.
Today wasn’t very cold.The Puddles were not frozen…
(There is nothing like a cool drink of mud to set you up for the day)
There was no frost at all under the trees. They have a warmth of their own, trapping warm air and protecting their surroundings from exposure to the cold night.
I am not really sure that this is frost on the grass and not just cold dew.
But Winter is coming…. and the Sloes will taste sweeter.
Fizz got an extra walk and she has got insulation so she doesn’t mind the cold and when we got home I had some toast (In case it gets bad later)
