The First Frost ...

Hello my dear friends,

slowly but surely the cold season is making it's way to south-western Ontario. 
A few days ago I woke up to the first frost and the days are now becoming colder more often too and I don't really mind because I love how everything glistens in the morning light and looks so beautiful. 

Even a dried up and fallen leaf looks so pretty.

On the deck my little drinking stations for the critters were all frozen ...

... with colored leaves ...

... hugged tightly by ice.

The morning frost ...

... kisses my last little roses of the year.

Every where you look, you can see a white glittering blanket of frost.


And this was my view when I opened my dining room curtains yesterday morning.

It was a little foggy and so many colors were to be seen every where but that was not all...

... a little cottontail rabbit was resting under our bushes right near the window.

Another critter that stopped by was ...

... this lovely squirrel. 

She sat in the shade, on the top of the fence for a little while...

... trying to get through the shell of a walnut.

She got into the nut in the end but decided that it would taste even better, if she were sitting high up in our maple tree in the morning sun shine.

I so enjoy all the creatures and critters that visit our garden and the ones that live in our garden.
 It is such a nice thing that they feel safe and happy to stay for a while.

Thank you for taking a few moments to visit and stay here today at Todolwen. 

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Beautiful photographs! I can appreciate the look of frost but am so dreading what it represents.

  2. You have captured some beautiful things but I gotta tell you ... makes me shiver.

    Happy Autumn!

  3. But don't you bemoan the damage wreaked on your precious tender plants? I do.
