First Hoar Frost – 30 October 2013

Hoar Frost_2013-10-30_6705

We’re well into Autumn now and the first serious hoar frost appeared this morning, covering the ground and the gardens like a crystalline, white vail. Hearty flowers have so far resisted the low temperatures and strong winds that sweep across southwestern Nova Scotia, but few can resist the sting of frost. Farewell friends! We look forward to your triumphant return in the spring!
