A hoary morning in the garden

This morning’s temperature and humidity met in perfect harmony to produce a glistening hoar frost throughout the garden. Nearly all the leaves, seed heads, small branches, buds, fruit, and needles in the landscape formed a foundation for this fuzzy covering that sparkled in the bright sun.

Below are just a sampling of photos of the hoar frost.

Cercis canadensis (Eastern Redbud)

Clematis ternifolia (Sweetautumn Clematis)


Malus ‘Prairie Fire’ (Crabapple)
