It was 27 degrees when I got up this morning. There is a silver frost covering the lawn and the pasture behind my house. It is lovely.
I have a maple and a pecan in my back yard. The maple has been dressed in a beautiful golden glow with a bit of orange for trim. The pecan puts on its green summer dress in the spring and then takes it off with the first freeze. This morning I watched the leaves from both trees float down. It reminds me of huge snowflakes drifting down. I suppose by the end of the day, they will be mostly bare.
