The First Frost

Yesterday morning the first frost lay on the ground, looking very pretty, although at  -6 degrees C it was time to put on the snowsuits!

We decided to feed the ducks at the local lake – every year we teach the kids how important it is to help the birds when the frost comes…

Every year the kids love the crunching sound of the frozen leaves under our feet, and this year was no exception. Maya was particularly interested by the frozen crystals on the leaves, and even took some leaves home to put in the freezer!

Alfie was intrigued by the loooong shadows!

And the plants looked beautiful covered with frost, and sparkling in the sunlight!
