Yesterday …

This morning …

Our first heavy frost hit last night. My impatiens were struck with a vengeance.

Oh well – it is Oct 20th and we do live in the “true North, strong and cold – um – free” πŸ™‚

This week I will plant some spring bulbs – hyacinth, daffodils, crocuses and tulips.

It makes me smile to think how the sight of those little green shoots poking up through the snow will cheer me in the springtime.  Everything in its season.

Right now it’s the season of change.

And I’m savouring every moment.

It won’t last much longer …

“Even if something is left undone,
 everyone must take time to sit still
 and watch the leaves turn.”

Happy Monday my friends!

  1. Oh, see, my flowers did that long ago. A month and a half ago to be precise. πŸ™‚ Don’t you hate to see them go? But I can’t wait to see what beauty awaits us through your pictures as the seasons change…Catching up on blogs (finally!), and yours is my first stop. Always so lovely here, Kathie.Susan πŸ™‚

  3. How very sad for your beautiful flowers! We had frost last night also so Hannah covered all the garden veggies that are still producing with those floating row covers. It seems to have worked on everything but the green peppers which looked a little shriveled on their tops. The raspberries were still good for picking today, and Sarah served them over a practice mini-wedding cake for us for dinner. The season is at an end for sure. I love your leaf picture.

  6. If there is one plant I like to get out of the ground before the frost it is the impatience. The last few years, I’ve left the roots in the ground. They don’t like to come out and I figure they must be good compost.YOur leaf picture is so pretty, I love the frost on the colored leaves, and I was looking back at least years pics and enjoying some similar ones to that.Have a great fall day.
