This is what I saw this morning on my walk around in
the yard looking for anything that was blooming.
I wanted to just turn around and go back into the
house and cuddle under my throw. LOL!
But what the heck this may will be my last chance to see
anything in bloom outdoors for the year so with a
defrosted camera in hand I went ventured on out.
The fog was coming up from the hollow and the field across
from the house where my daughter lives looked like
it was covered with snow instead of frost.
and her remaining leaves with icy crystals
on them would fall away now.
The Cerithe Major that had grown so slow this
summer will never get its blooms now. Sorry Robin
but they grew as fast as our Stock plants last year. LOL!
And all of the remaining chrysanthemums blooms
were sparkly with frost.
The Fragaria Ornamental Strawberry leaves
were edged and speckled with frost.
And even this little Horizon Geranium that had been
left to its own demise did not escape the frost . Even the touch of sunlight shadowing across
its leaves did not give any hope that it may survive.
The only remaining green leaves in the woods behind
the house had a sparkling sheen on them.
I am quite certain that those old Oak leaves
will not be fazed at all and will still be around
all winter to glide into the flower beds at every
change in the direction of the wind.
These leaves that were frozen in the bird baths…
were just a reminder that it is time to put the
heaters in them to keep them from freezing up
so the birds will have water these cold days ahead.
Today is Fertilizer Friday so it is a frosty “Flaunting”.
