First (Aerial) Frost

November 29 began like the other mild days we have had thus far this autumn, but by afternoon a London fog had settled on the landscape.  Freezing temperatures during the night gave us our first aerial frost of the year.

Enjoy a little walk with me along our hedge and garden to enjoy the seasonal sight.

Some gold and silver:

The wild rose leaves were especially gorgeous with the unique crystal formation:

Festive garlands:
(black byrony berries)

Where did the spider go during the freeze?  In an webgloo?


This has been a spectacular year for holly.  Our neighbors who are in their late sixties say they have never seen so many berries.

Fare thee well, Cosmos.  See you next year.
