Funny that I blogged about not getting frost yet yesterday (written Sunday evening) and we woke up to a temperature of around 30 or possibly lower. Generally our first frost date is October 15, but we can have frost anywhere from the end of Sept through the end of October. Last year our first frost was in September.
There was a fairly heavy frost yesterday morning. I always like the first frost, I especially love it when it comes on a sunny morning, everything sparkles in the sun and the air always seems clearer. I love the way the frost outlines everything in crystals, it’s really quite amazing. I’m always inspired to get out and take some photos when I see the first frost gracing the gardens.
We often get frost later than others around us because our gardens are surrounded by tall trees and we live on top of a hill. It has to be a fairly heavy frost for us to see any in our gardens. It’s nice to have the protection from the frost, but I’d rather have more sun in my gardens.
