Having had “One of those days”, I am so grateful that it began with beauty. The frost turned everything into works of art, from leaves lingering on table tops to compost not swept up.
The hellebore leaves, harbingers of flowers to come, looked as if someone had taken a tipex pen to them and outlined each one with exquisite care.
The last few blooms on the wallflower competed with its leaves in the beauty pageant.
The sedums continue to look wonderful.
Only one flower left on the wonderful Knautia macedonica, definitely my Plant of the Year.
The heuchera leaves mingle with the leaf litter from the acer, the frost mocking my pathetic attempts at cake icing.
No snow here, but a definite taste of winter, only 1C in the greenhouse last night. Maybe Dave at The Home Garden should do a frost watch to follow his Fall Colour Project? I’m sure I’m not alone in having posted photos of frost, and even snow, so I’m off to hunt them down from the comfort of my snug study!
