This morning we had our first really hard frost. It was 22 when I stepped outside to walk the dog. As I walked over to the driveway, the sun’s rays hit the flower garden, and the ice crystals glittered in the sun. I could only marvel at the beautiful frost pictures…the leaves coated with ice, making pretty patterns, ice crystals hanging from the rose leaves, and more. So I took pictures to show you the garden in all its frosty beauty today.
