Frost. There is always something special about the first (or the second) frost of the season. It pushes the fact that yes, the seasons are changing. Of course, we would have missed this beautiful experience if the Mexico Thanksgiving holiday had gone through. So far the weather forecast is rain on Monday, shifting to freezing temps through the weekend and even a threat of snow. Hmmm, certainly not what we expect for this time of year. Where is our rainy soggy fall?
The wild birds are needing more attention these days. The birdbath and hummingbird feeder require morning defrosting. The regular feeders are being seriously depleted on a daily basis.
I’m looking forward to some of the chilly weather since it offers possible frosty photographs. This is the time of year that helps spur my interest in lines, shadows, and silhouettes. My brain is calming down and starting to look for patterns and interest in creating.
Frosty aged metal is another great find in the backyard. The above images are from different sides of the same metal fence post. I’ve taken photos of this post a couple years back. It’s nice to revisit. Maybe this week will bring even more interesting rusty frosty finds!
And one final pic of my trusty companion. He really wanted to join me in the far back section of the yard (the unfenced wilds), but no luck there buddy! Mr. “I Don’t Listen To A Word You Say”. Yes, you can stay in the upper yard and eat bunny poo. Let me take my photos in peace. 😉
