First Frost

The evening light yesterday gave a hint of a cold night to follow.

I may not have a sea view, or a mountain view…
But it still changes a lot between a clear vs a foggy day!

I did not get out until around 9.30 but then there was still frost on the ground in the shady spots. Leaves and grass bordered with tiny white ice crystals.

Back home from the supermarket I exchanged the dianthus in my balcony boxes for heather. The ‘dusty millers’ I left as they were – they are hardy plants that will last through the winter season.

  1. I must get my non-hardy plants in but the foul weather is making trips into the garden a most unpleasant experience. I'm hoping it won't suddenly change into frosts without giving me a day or two to get out there.

  8. I just love the delicate frost images you have captured!!! They say that the leaves don't turn color till we have had one good frost, but I don't know about that...
