The calendar may say different, but winter has arrived here at Happy Acres. This morning the temperature got down to 19F, and everything was covered in a blanket of frost. I ran out before breakfast, camera in hand, to get a few photos before the sun melted the beautiful displays. The photos below show what I found.
The lamb’s ear was even whiter than usual.
This oak leaf was pretty in the front yard, even though we don’t have any oak trees!
The yew was lovely with delicate frost crystals looking as if they were etched on the needles.
This stone was etched also, but not by frost.
The green onions were frozen, but still pretty.
The Salvia coccinea was still blooming like crazy.
This red pepper escaped harvest. It’s seen better days.
It’s time to put the Big Blue watering can up for the season. We won’t be needing it any more until spring.
