Tuesday Treasures – 23 #Brainfluffbookblog #LightintheLockdown

Standard

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve taken a series of photos from the garden last week, during a cold snap, when the frost formed slightly differently so that the ice crystals were larger than usual. So I grabbed my camera and went outside…

    • Yes, it was certainly beautiful. My admiration was tempered by the fact that it was flippin’ cold, and there’s always the risk of losing plants when it gets that freezy…

  1. It’s been some time since I saw some visible frost on trees and bushes, but this very morning it did make its appearance due to a particularly cold night after a foggy day, although I could not find anything worthy of admiration as the subject you shared with your pictures 🙂

  2. How pretty! And I think we have one of the plants that you do in one of our flower beds! It’s the one that looks like oak leaves – 5th picture from the top. I’m not the flower person here so I can’t remember what it’s called but we have quite a bit of it. Funny that a plant that flourishes in the UK can also flourish in Alabama. Talk about a versatile plant!

    • Thank you, Katherine. Yes, it’s a foliage plant called heuchera – and you might well have some growing in your garden as they come from the States! They are some of my favourite plants as they come in such a different range of colours. And you’re right… they are tough. They’ll cope with our winters, but they also deal with hot dry weather, too.

    • Thank you, Mogsy! Yes, it is a spiderweb! And I was surprised to see it, too. In Autumn, I regularly see webs in the garden glittering with dew, but I don’t often see them covered in frost…

  3. Oh, these are WONDERFUL! We had some beautiful days of hoarfrost in…late December, I want to say. Or was it January? All a blur, lol. 🙂 But you have the perfect color balance here. LOVE it!
