Zero degrees at 06.00

Top O' the Mornin to Ya!

Well it's official, we had the first frost of the year this morning.. A big Zero' degrees registered on the car thermometer and Brooke captured these 4 awesome pics as soon as  daylight appeared.

Brrrrrrr, reminds me of summer in Scotland (sorry Laura!) ha ha. Actually it's a bit of a heatwave over there which means a massive increase in sun burn and everything related to over exposure to sudden sunshine.. I remember as a kid going to Largs in Ayrshire for the day (that's Robbie Burns territory!) and it was burning hot, well, me and my big sister baked in the heat for hours and yes you got it, she suffered heatstroke and I got really bad sun burn.. not cool and certainly not recommended.

So, frosty morning eh? the winter veggies and doing great, we had the yummiest broccoli and cheese sauce last night.
Is there a difference or what when it's picked fresh from the garden? I can't believe the difference..go on everyone, get planting, you'll never go back to a bought off the shelf green again.

Well gotta get on with work, but have a beautiful day everyone and remember, Green is Good.

Thought for the day: 

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)



  1. I love frost and cold! We only get perhaps one or 2 really really light frosts a year up here. Hot days in Scotland! Few and far between. Mind you, one summer my job was playpark attendant at Aberdeen beach. I was outside all day, everyday and I was brown as anything - people kept asking me where I'd been for y holiday - never believed it was the beach at Aberdeen!

    1. Hey Laura, Good Old Aberdeen beach, I lived there for 12 years, this world you and I are in is getting smaller all the time,
      We are planning to visit your place soon + dogs. can't wait.
