Last weekend we had our first official frost. I took Boom-boom for a walk and captured some of nature's icing.
Looks like lace, doesn't it?
Last little bits of green are edged in crystals.
The queen anne's lace almost looks like it is blooming again.
It was worth the cold toes to see the frosty fringes on red leaves...
...or the icy tiara on a purple flower.
Red veins course through the frozen skin.
As the sun came over the hill and began burning off the frost I saw these tiny blossoms catching some rays.
I think this must have been a coneflower now decked out in a spiky wig of frost.
I couldn't resist one last leaf with only a bit of frost left clinging to its underside once the sun came up.
