First Frost Certainty

This morning’s surprise was a fine lace of frost on the grass and ground covers. First frost is something worth celebrating. You always know when it is the first frost, however, in late winter or early spring, you never know if the frost you find on cold mornings is the last one until much later. There might be another frost the next day, the day after that, or on a cold morning a week later. Not until warm weather has arrived for good, can you look back and say for sure, “That was the last frost.”
