A big black willow toppled over down along Fargo Brook a couple of years back. The cold temperatures the other morning yielded a bumper crop of feathery frost crystals on the exposed roots over the water.

Our first frost came right on schedule the other day. This dandelion head sported a crusting of crystals.
