How beautiful, a heavy frost this morning and the first jonquil opened against the red of the scarlet barked maple.
I left bread for the birds, feeling sorry for them on this cold morning.
In the carport the car thermometer was registering 0 degrees and the ice warning message came on. I slipped it into `snow' mode before backing out.
This evening as I left the office, I caught glimpses of a pale winter sunset through the fire escape window, as I descended the cold stairwell. By the time I drove into the evening traffic it was gone, yet there was still more light than there was at this time last week.
