The temperatures in Halifax have taken a nosedive this week. The mornings have been quite bitter. In spite of the wicked cold, I have found one thing to appreciate about this late autumnal snap.
Is there anything more delightful than a heavy brush of frost on fallen leaves? I am glad we have been too busy to bother with much raking thus far as the sight of the frost on our lawn in the morning has been icily beautiful. I had to make sure to take the time for photographs in the early light before I left for work.
Even the grass, pale green and frozen, crunching underfoot, seems almost prettier this way.
I know it won’t last long. The next step will be snow, which has a beauty of its own I almost await. For now I will try to enjoy the in between time, no matter how chilling the wind.
