I love how the frost can either accentuate or hide the foliage of plants giving them a different character on chilly mornings. I went out and took photo’s of as many plants as I could before my hands went numb and have uploaded several here. The wind dropped so I managed to get some clearer images though several are still a blurred mess where I had to stretch over the frozen grass or soil to try and capture the shot.
The initial 5 here are:
1. Hebe albicans
2. Heuchera ‘Georgia Peach’
3. Skimmia ‘Nymans’
4. Common Fern
The others are below and all were photographed on Sunday 15th Jan.
Surprised to spot little pink buds on one section
Rose 'Claire Austin' Flowering
Doesn’t show here but lots of frost on the top of this January Rose
Sunset view from the Camellia bed & Berry Bed
Bit blurry, I had to stretch so as not to trample the frozen grass
Dark pink buds echo the eventual flower colour
Frost melted before I got there but just look at those beautiful faded colours!
Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald Gaiety' (Spindle 'Emerald Gaiety') Changing Colour
Cold weather adds a pink tinge to some of the leaves
Fragaria vesca spp. alpina
Primula veris (Cowslip) Budding
Frosty as the buds appear
Skimmia japonica 'Nymans' Budding
Crisp green amongst frost
I love the angles on the fronds of this fern
Frosty edges highlight the leaf shape
