After so much rain the frost in the garden today was just stunning. The ground completely rock hard and unworkable, but the frost on plants transformed the smallest of plants into a carefully edged Jewel. Beautiful but I committed the cardinal sin of walking on the grass to catch the best photos (not a good idea see December calender)
The plants looks so different coated in frozen the plant in the first photo is only just recognisable as a wall flower, frosted beech leaves, Cotoneaster berries coated with frost, sparking fronds from the ornamental grasses, the Portuguese laurel just tinged with frost all add up to a winter wonderland as nature makes it. It's hard to imagine how it will all emerge again in a few months time, but hopefully it will.
