I'll come back to my the French River canoe trip, but let's bring you up-to-date on the 'seasons in the valley'. Seasons are changing fast here, and we had our first heavy frost today, just 3 days after the average date it happens.
It was a beautiful sunny day, though only 2°C when we struggled out of bed, so I knew the frost would disappear fast. I actually hurried outside to get pictures even before having my coffee!
In all the lower parts of the yard where the cold air drains downhill, the grass was white.
Actually a lot of our 'grass' isn't grass at all, but an interesting mixture of weeds that I keep mown short. Here Creeping Charlie I think.
This big old Rhubarb leaf seemed to show the frost well.
As did these Buttercup leaves in the garden. Buttercup is an invasive weed if you allow their pretty yellow blooms in your garden!
The frost was some contrast to the day before when we had that windy rainy afternoon, with more rain overnight. All the fallen ash leaves seemed to hold the water droplets til morning.
But the rain did help break that uncomfortable hot spell we were having, and maybe it will help us finally get some fall colour. Today turned out to be a beautiful warm day, great day for working in the garden.
