On Saturday, October 13 – the day before Mrs. Sayuri’s sixth birthday – Jack Frost paid us a visit (we had our first frost).
Before the sun had a chance to melt all the frost, I rushed out with my camera in hand, to try and capture some of that early morning magic.
The zinnias were bursting with color and energy this year. It was disappointing to see how they fared after the frost…they didn’t stand a chance against it, although the frosted flower heads did make for an interesting subject to photograph. Once the sun shone on these frost bitten beauties, they were sad and wilted looking.
Even all the fallen leaves were covered in frost. I love how the morning dew drops freeze and looks like tiny crystals.
I was in awe of how beautiful the frost looked on the front porch posts.
After I had taken my pictures and most of the frost had melted, there still remained large patches in the shadows of the barn and house. I woke Mrs. Sayuri up and told her to go outside and check it out. All bundled up in her scarf, hat and layers of clothing, she laid down in the frozen grass and made a “frost angel”. 🙂 If the weather predictions are correct, she might be making snow angels before too long…
