Frost and migration

Regina, Saskatchewan:  Frost and migration — two signs of true fall. Finally, the weather is changing. After a long stretch of hot weather, daytime highs are dropping to the low teens, with lows edging to zero and below.

Yesterday, there was frost in the garden, tipping the edges of the oregano, thyme and parsley sugar-crystal white.

Birds are migrating, too. Canada geese wheel over our house — on the way to fields to feed, I hope. Is it really time for them to start south?

Fall: A restless time of year.
