Frosty Magic

Intricate leaflets

With a silvery frost tinge;

A magic dusting?

 

********************

 

As I left my tiny cabin in the morning for a walkabout, a dusting of frost had fallen everywhere on the plants outside.  I was enthralled with the fern fronds’ design, as well as how the silvery frost blends down to the usual green colour as it gets closer to the tips.

You can see how the oval-shaped leaves from yet another plant – on the top and right of this photo – stand out with their distinctive outline due to the frost.

This photo was taken in early July of 2007, when I was visiting in Picton, South Island, New Zealand  (their wintertime).
