Celery Farm, 7:40 a.m. Tuesday



   Today was one of those mornings when you could almost feel the seasons change.

   The distant landscape was swathed in mist and frost, in stark contrast to the Frost_1030view from the previous post.

   The railing at the Warden's Watch had a light coat of frost.

   I arrived silently, in time to catch a coot, with its goofy head motion, swim past the front of the platform. I had neglected to wear a coat, and was glad I had a cup of coffee with me to keep me warm.

   Below, a shot of a portion of the Celery Farm blessed with sunlight early this morning.

   Yes, I do believe that's a touch of frost on the phragmites.
