First Frost

One of the sure signs of Autumn is the arrival of the first frost.

This morning, the first frost of the season graced the area and signaled the official end to the growing season. Chris and I moved the palms and hibiscus into the pool house for protection before going out for Happy Hour at a friend's house last evening.  They were too full of water form the rains to bring inside the house yet--but as soon as they are dry, they will come inside for the winter.

Frost is a sure sign that winter is not far off. 

And it is cold this morning. As you might expect with frost. But the dawn is breaking with a clear sky and the autumn colors on the trees are even more vibrant as the leaves prepare to take their final dance with the wind and fall to the ground. 

The falling leaves mean that I get to rake the lawn again! Yay!
