Morning frost

Beauty One of my favourite things to look at in the world is the transformation wrought by frost - particularly hoar frost, which coats objects above ground level with a forest of spiky needles. Ivy leaves delicately outlined are a favourite, but we don't have any of those (at least, not photogenic ones) in our back garden. What we do have, however, is a leylandii hedge and a clump of pampas grass. Today's frost showed that the hedge is covered, from about four feet above the ground, in cobwebs: And the pampas grass shows a hoarfrost mohican, with Kita in the background: Love having a garden.

I am so thankful for digital cameras -- what did we do without them? Great photos...

I couldn't find an email, but wanted you to know that I've tagged you in my Wednesday morning post.
