First Frost

The sun, in its brief course today will melt the edges off this leaf, but I caught the early morning shiver as we walked along the hedgerow. The sun stays flat this time of year--people call it a lazy sun --because it never gets very high in the sky. Dark lingers until 8am; sunset by 4pm. The leaf and I both have to make the best of the lazy sun. If you look carefully, you can see a hard working, chilly caterpillar on the bottom leaf. No doubt he is waiting for the sun as well.

You could have another career--as a photographer. I especially like the dots of frost.

The leaf looks frosted enough to decorate a cake!
