We had our first frost of the season as you can see on the front lawn. It was 38 degrees when I got up friday morning to drive my son to work. Brr…why did I complain about the heat??? lol The car windows were glazed over with a thin layer of this icy stuff too. For some reason the back window gets a thicker layer. While some yards in my neighborhood lawns were completely frosted over, mine was in patches.
The Peony foliage was the first casualty in my garden this year. It will soon turn completely brown and have to be cut back. But the funny part is the other perennials & annuals didn’t seem effected by the frost at all. The chores right now are minimal at best. Soon there will be more than a few scattered leaves to rake up.
The roses in my garden are still producing buds. I guess the silly things don’t realize that summer is over and winter is almost here. However they do look pretty with the glazing on their petals and leaves. I guess fall is on it’s way out & winter is knocking at the door.
