BRRR .. first hard freeze

I think that there was a frost during the time when we were gone out of town last week, but last night we definitely had a hard freeze. It was 21º when we got up this morning, and many plants in our yard didn't make it through the night.

Today it is still cold -- only 36º at almost-noon. But it is sunny and the sky is the usual brilliant blue.

I do love the fall weather, even the cold. It's good to be outside in the invigorating weather. Feels good to be alive.

Coming up next before we know it -- SNOW!

We may live on opposite sides of the country, but we both agree about fall. The crisp air, the freshness and cleanness of it - being outdoors at this time is heaven.

Oh yeah and I love the snow as well.
