Frosty and Evergreen

16 Jan 2012
Overcast 4°C / 39°F

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
5. Foxglove

The others are below and all were photographed on Sunday 15th Jan.

You have some real beauties among those photos – I particulary like the frosting on the hebe, fern and foxglove.

hebe, fern and foxglove were my favourites too. several others started out great but defrosted fast as the sun came around so I missed them. others defrosted just by having mu warmth beside them. precarious life of crystals.

They’re beautiful, CDfolia. I especially love the main photo and the foxglove. Works of art!
