Last night we had the second mild frost of autumn.
Heading to church at 9:00 am this morning, I warmed up the car and turned on the defrosters before I could see out of the windows.
Those without rear window defrosters had to find their scraper, usually located under a seat or in the trunk after months of not being used.
That white stuff on the ground is frost.
Most of annuals can survive a mild frost but they look so pitiful by this time of year that it's a pointless victory.
