In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.

I was thinking the same thing, especially since it got down to 49 degrees last night! But the colors in the fields have said fall for weeks now. sigh,

It’s a gorgeous SUMMER day here — 64°F with cool, clear breezes. With nearly a month of summer left–and though I love the fall–this is a PERFECT summer day to me, and I wish they were all like this. 🙂 Much better than the heat and humidity.
