My A-Maze-ing Garden

When the sun finally climbed above the ridge in the east, the frost glittered in the garden in an amazing way.  I'm always just a little disappointed that I can't capture the sparking frost that I  see with the camera.  Without the frost our garden maze is almost invisible.  Not the usual maze found in a garden, ours is meant to confuse the deer and contain the leaf mulch.  Because we keep changing where we plant things and where the fences are located it works pretty well.  Sometimes I take the wrong path and get a little confused myself.  The frost will be gone from the garden soon and the maze will blend in again. Right now it is truly a-Maze-ing!

We were able to work in the garden after the bright sunlight warmed the air.  These mild November days have been truly remarkable.  An early sunset ushered in the chill once more and we headed inside.  The area beyond the right side of the photo remained in shadow for the entire day.  Despite the warmed daytime air this ground held sufficient chill to be still coated in frosty white at day's end.  The cold will prevail and soon the ground will be frozen.

That is quite a sight Becky. I have been loving working in the garden so far into November.

What a beautiful scene! I'm impressed that you were up and at 'em so early to capture the frost on camera. I'm not a morning person, so I rarely get out to photograph frost. But I certainly enjoy photos like this one. We are due to get about six inches of snow by Saturday morning--now that will be a shock after such a mild November!
