The lawn looked white toward the rising sun.
The boxwood on the edge of the garden were rimmed in frost.
This ninebark leaf was totally covered in frost crystals.
And this raspberry, glowing red in the morning sun.
A patch of unmowed grass in the shade.
Seed heads of the pink coneflowers.
A 7 foot tall mullein that hid in a back corner of the garden.
One of my favourite fuzzy leaves.
And yes, we do have a little bit of last week's 4" snowfall still left, in spots where it's mostly shaded.
We have a steep roof and the snow cascades off it fast, landing with a whoosh and a thump. But it consolidates, as does the snow in a real avalanche, becoming more like ice than snow. Right across in front of our front door, I'm hoping for sunshine to melt this still, instead of having to chop it into pieces!
And the little roses survived it all, both the snow and the frost!
I love mornings like that! The pattern on the ninebark leaf is neat. You had me going there a minute with 8 below. Then I realized it's Celsius!ReplyDelete
Good point; I'll mention that.Delete
That IS a bit chilly, but it makes for some beautiful photos.ReplyDelete
The frost provided you with some great photo-ops!ReplyDelete
We had the same frost (-6), the same night, but no snow yet. The Bruce is milder in the fall (but takes longer to warm up in spring).ReplyDelete
Here we are! Winter approacheth!ReplyDelete
The frost is beautiful on the plants. Nice photos!ReplyDelete
