    Nice tanka (love the picture too), but I can only imagine having a frost in September. September is one of our warmest months in the deep south.


    1. Thanks, Margaret. I remember back when we moved to Nashville, we had already had our first frost up here (mid-September), but when we got to Tennessee the daytime temps were still in the ’90s!

    I am kind of a “rainbow killer”…that sounds harsh, doesn’t it? I mean, I just don’t have a green thumb! And yes, the first frost can come pretty early here in Maine, too! Not looking forward to it at all.
    Loved “rainbow at my fingertips” though!
