Spring Frost at Sunrise

The beauty of a frosty sunrise cleanses
and invigotates the senses.

View towards the berry patch and espalier

Icing on the strawberries

Pine stumps on what is to become my spring garden bed
a lonely Nicotiana sylvestris in foreground

Iced clover

Frosted raspberry leaves enjoying the first rays of sun

View across the fence, the holding paddock
to the second holding paddock .
This little and ephemeral transformation is
the nearest I get to an all concealing snowcover.


  1. Beautiful photos but I am glad I am only looking at all that frost and not having to actually feel it!

  2. Hello !

    Magnifiques photos...

    Ton trèfle est "étrange"...

  3. Hi! Thank you for your comment on my blog.
    In Japan it's the end of summer.
    So I'm really pleased to see the icing leaves.
    Because it's humid in Tokyo.
    So I feel something cooool!
    Thank you:)

  4. Those frosty leaves make good photography subjects at close range. Thanks a lot for dropping by in my blog. You have a beautiful blog here and I promise to be back.

  5. Glorious frost photos, Arija! I'm looking forward to our first fall frost.

    Godspeed on your journey and keep in touch along the way!
