First Frost

Yesterday, my garden was ripe with exploding blooms and, at dusk, I clipped orange and lemon marigolds, fire red pineapple sage flowers, violet angelonia, rose and lemon geranium stalks and lemon balm. They're sitting in bowls all around the kitchen, waiting for arrangement.

I woke this morning to a heavy frost on everything from blades of grass to rooftops. By afternoon, my garden had melted. So it should be, now that it's December!

My photographs of the flowers last day did not do them justice so you'll have to see this evening's painting to get the feel of it.
