A Change of the Seasons

The first frosty fairy of the year visited us this morning bringing a glittering trail of crystals. Though I'm working today I couldn't resist running out to grab a few photos of the garden. Just look at how lovely the edges of each plant and flower are!

 
 
October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.
