Sign of the season

We've lost only some hyacinth beans that had already made seeds and a couple of nasturtium seedlings in pots exposed to moving air. So far this season, there's been the barest partial skim of clear ice on the shallow drinking basins for the birds, in a shady place. But it was funny go get no water from the hose when I went to sprinkle the seedbeds. First, I noticed that the handle for the on-off valve wouldn't move. Then, when I removed the variable nozzle, I found that the interior was filled with ice. This must have been left in a shady and exposed place.
