The ground was white with winter’s first real frost this morning.
The day that followed was cool but sunny.
This is normal for winter here. We get a good frost to kill the bugs and sweeten stone fruit and swedes and then we have the sun.
It might not bring high temperatures but the dry, crisp cold is preferable to warmer but moister winters which are typical further north.
Today I’m grateful for the dry, blue-sky cold.
