first frost

overnight, our first good frost, the kind that edges grasses and fallen leaves and makes the landscape look ethereal and sparkling white in the dim morning light. here, it covers the down of a grounded milkweed seed with thousands of drops of hoary crystals.

Hoary frost is blowing its icy breath this way, I guess.

Very pretty. It makes you appreciate frost all over again. It does have its beauty.

I was surprised, winter is coming. autumn is a lovely season for me even if i have not been there. and it's winter soon. okay, another season to look forward to.

I love how delicate and magical the frost looks! Beautiful. (we don't see frost here in the Caribbean) Thanks for the glimpse!
