First Frost . . .

We had our first frost this morning.
I have always liked the phrase, 
"The frost in on the pumpkin".

I did a little research on Goggle.
I found this wonderful poem by poet James Whitcomb Riley
 ( 1849-1916)
A slice of folk Americana.

The Frost Is On The Punkin

Love that phrase, too, but rarely realize it here in our part of AZ. The Man and I were out yesterday, walking around, doing a bit of shopping, & enjoying the fact that it was under 100* -- well, it was 98*, but still! Thank you so much for visiting and following my blog. Hope you have a great weekend!

We have had frost here too...my summer flowers are just about gone. It's a shame because they were so pretty!

Now I wish it was Autumn over here! The days are starting to get warmer over here and since I really don't like summer at all I'm not very happy! I look forward to reading all of your wintery posts so I can try to cool down!

It's lovely to meet you. I am now following you!

Best wishes,
Natasha.
