Frosted   Leave a comment

We had our first freeze last night, as predicted, and our precautions paid off.  Nothing froze or broke, though a couple of plugs blew out.

It was cold, though; I woke up and turned up the electric blanket a couple of times.  The morning was chill and clear.  The old poplar tree seemed to greet the dawn with relief.

There were plenty of frosty leaves scattered about, giving the happy photographer a wealth of color and texture.

It’s been a beautiful day.  I went out and watched the riding lessons for a while, played with Bella, fed some carrots, and entertained the dogs.  Tonight is supposed to be warmer, but it doesn’t matter.  We’re prepared for it, and we just got a load of wood hauled in.  Let it freeze!
