First the frost came. Then the killing frost came. My guess – my min/max thermometer having been (I hope only) misplaced – is that on Thursday night temps dropped below -5° C ; when I returned from school on Friday afternoon the aloe buds had already collapsed.

When I leave for work between 7:30 and 8:00, the light is magnificent. So this morning –Saturday – I set up my camera in the guest bedroom and took the following series between 7:22 and 8:26. How I wish that the best view in the house was not from here – on the other hand, I don’t have guests that often. Perhaps I must get into the habit of having my morning coffee in this bay window, after years of having it in the blue bay at The House that Jack Built…

    • Hallo, Tatyana, and welcome! Yesterday I moved a quick-warming quartz heater into the room and took some detail sunrise pics. Lovely! Today dawned frost-free.

  1. What a sight! Doesn’t take long for aloe blooms to droop. Ours wilted within an hour of dawn. Great learning curve!

    • Hallo, Sis! Can downward curves be great? 😉 Sorry to hear you’ve also had bad frost, especially as your aloes are so spectacular…
