You have to get outside early to catch the beauty of the first hard frost. With a starry sky and night temperatures in the twenties, everything looks crusted with white.
This sedum close to the house, near the stored heat of a stone wall got just a touch of frost.
The taller hens and chicks got a little bit more.
In the garden frosted flowers have cold lacy edges.
They look so perfect. It's hard to think that some of them have received a deadly chill.
Red blueberry leaves look nice with their frosted edges.
Ed braved the cold to get these great pictures. There so many lacy crystals on this plant that I can't tell what it is.
Even the stones got touched by the frost. It all looks so beautiful, but when the sun comes up death will visit the garden.
