First Frost

Frost Dec12 003 (1024x768)

He’s here.  It began long before midnight so we knew there was no escaping him this time.  At first, gleaming, light it was all too obvious that Jack had been up to his tricks with those icy fingers, bringing with his touch our first frost of the winter.  Of course it is very pretty, there’s no denying that.  Coupled with its nemesis, the sunshine, it is prettier still, if only for a short while.  But when you grow so many marginally appropriate, or should that be inappropriate, plants it can be a little scary.
