Beauty in all seasons …
thanks, Marion this is rare and the season of windswept and wet! is not pretty, though it is warmer than white, Frances
Lovely frosty foliage! The up side of a cold night is the beauty that the frostynnight brings. Christina
thanks, Christina I thought it was a bit chilly when I got up this morning but it wasn’t until light and I looked out that I saw how cold, the insulation in my walls is working well :o)
another upside I hope is that it will break up some of those clods of earth, Frances
I see you’re making the most of our cold snap – love the contrast and details – all beautifully edged Frances -
thanks Laura, yes we do not get white often here, the wind has long ago blown away any interesting seedheads, Frances
I love the way frost outlines leaves and plants. Like an artist with a white marker pen
so do I Helen, I also like how it picks out details otherwise unnoticed, Frances
Love that third photo with the pretty purple leaves encased in frosty silver.
thanks Marguerite, that is a really beautiful foliage hebe which had all the top growth killed off in storms a few years ago, I cut it back and left the root in the hope it might regrow, it has very slowly, I took some cuttings last year but they did not take I will try some more this year, we are back to rain today! Frances
Frances these are beautiful…I love when foliage is frosted especially the plump foliage
thanks Donna, Frances
Wonderful how frost transforms foliage isn’t it – like Helen said, painterly.
yes Janet a white covering looks beautiful while the current rain just looks wet! Frances
