Frost Descending 霜降 October 23

Frost Descends Painting

Frost Descending 霜降 is the 18th solar term under the Chinese lunar calender. It is the last solar term of autumn and marks the arrival of the first frost when temperatures rapidly fall.

There is a custom in China of eating persimmons which ripen and are at their best during this time of the year. This is suppose to nourish your body and be good for your health.

There were persimmons in the basket in the living room but unfortunately they were all eaten up so I cannot take photos. Here's one of my paintings instead.
