My World Tuesday: First Frost

I woke up to a chilly morning on Sunday, and when I went for an early walk, I discovered that we had had our first frost. It's nice to see the way the frost melts in response to the rising sun but stays put in the shadows. The corn and the hay have been harvested, and the fields seemed so very quiet. I like the first frost. It gives me permission to dive into that first bag of candy corn, think about Halloween costumes, warm pajamas, Thanksgiving.... It's a wonderful, cozy time of year, and the light is beautiful. It's good to see, too, that some flowers thrive despite the cold.

  4. Such a gorgeous photo! Tes me too lke the first, it's beautiful. But I feel sorrow for the birds and the cats and other animals going out, lost from their homes.. each time the frost comes I worry about them..
    But I like the cold and fresh air. And I like candles..
    We haven't got frost here yet, but it was not far from.. the last night.
    Today the sun is shining with its full power! :)

  5. LOL! I like the way you think! No frost here yet, so I guess that means no candy corn for me!
    Your photos are lovely; the first one is amazing! Here's to frost and warm pajamas!

  12. First frost in Maine is just gorgeous, Sandy. I like the stubble in the fields and your changing colors - all herald fall.

  14. Although I like your first frost pictures, I'm glad we haven't had a frost yet. It will likely come in a couple of weeks, but I can wait.
    By the way, your first picture is absolutely stunning.

    The third image is indeed amazing.

    With regard to temperature, am craving to feel such frost, as it gets rarely colder outside, than inside of the fridge.

    Please have a wonderful Tuesday, thanking you as well a thousand times for your kind comment.

  17. Nice shots, Sandy. I like this time of year for the blue skies and foliage; the produce and mums and, of course, Halloween. But November feels quite lonely to me sometimes.

    Peace,

  18. We are a few weeks behind you. We went camping this past weekend and it was too warm for sleeping bags and we wore short sleeves when we got up in the morning.
    I love the first frost. Not just for the scenic effect, but that's the end of ticks and chiggers in my geocaching hobby plus the vegetation dies back and makes it easier bushwhacking and the poison ivy turns red so I can see it better.
