The Frosted Garden

The first frosts are almost always something that this gardener dreads.  Mostly because it is the end of the growing season – mostly, some plants will grow on through the winter. But if you look closely at the frost you can also find it is a thing of beauty.

  1. Love the frost on the oregano–how pretty.
    We had our first frost well over a month ago.

  2. I can't figure out what is happening in the warmer climates that is not happening here yet. We have had no frost yet so I know we are going to get hit hard when it comes!


  3. Lovely photos of frost on your plants.

  4. In our area frost always destroys plants,so we need new tips to keep our plants alive,and fresh
    Thank you
