Hard Frost

There was a hard frost here last night. When we went out this morning, the round yellow fruits of the Gingko trees across the street were drop drop dropping onto the pavement. The day was just beginning to warm up. A little later, we passed by a maple tree in Mendon Ponds park just as it decided to shed it's remaining leaves. One, two three, they all fell off with a popping noise.

This Coppertina Ninebark is still holding on to its foliage for the time being. And the greenery from the daisies is also quite stubborn. In a word, there's still colour out there to admire.

Back from Charleston, I hardly saw the place. I was in meetings almost the whole time, but it was overcast anyway. I know it's a beautiful city from past visits.

Very funny comments about the afghan. It's a Salvation Army rescue. I was just so excited about finishing Coquille. Here are some better pictures...

How very color coordinated your knitting is with the season around you! We have not yet had a hard frost. Which is a bit scary for November. Part of the reason for the zillion squash, I suppose.

You've finished it, and I still haven't chosen the yarn... It looks seriously good.
The shawl is so in tune with the beautiful nature around you! And it looks great an you too.

Wonderful frost pictures! That shawl looks so much better when not competing with the granny squares.

Very pretty, and the modeling shot is great too. It looks terrific on you.
