Brrrrr... It was a chilly night. Temps plunged to the freezing point overnight. I don't think it lasted long but enough to leave the icy crystals on the vast open fields.
As far as the eye can see, there is a frosty layer of crystals covering what was green grass yesterday.
Does anyone recognize this beautiful setting?
It certainly isn't Hoe & Shovel. Would it be a stretch to say it is kin to Hoe & Shovel?
There was lots of bird activity at the feeders this early morning... not at all bothered by the brisk temps.
Yesterday I arrived for a visit with my dear sister, Marmee, in (Leiper's Fork) or Franklin, TN. Many of you are regular readers of her blog also. Her country homestead is kind of like stepping into another world for this Florida girl. It gives me much excitement to come "north". The colors of the leaves are a treat for eyes longing to see the changes of season and to feel the crisp air of autumn.
My sister is gifted with remarkable natural creative genius. Her interests and keen eye for beauty and uniqueness of design are well expressed in every nook and cranny of her home and garden. I've shared with you a peek of a few of the vignettes I captured on my early morning venture outdoors.
