Mosaic Monday: A Touch of Frost

Today, a collage of post-frost flowers, seeds, and foliage. It’s been down to 26F the last few nights, and before the week is up we’ll have lows around 15F.



From top left, clockwise: red clover, ‘Loyalist’ hosta seedheads, Miscanthus sinensis ‘Little Zebra,’ weeping larch/tamarack tree, Helenium autumnale (sneezeweed), comfrey with frost crystals, Aster laevis ‘Bluebird,’ and frosty maple and birch leaves.

“I saw old Autumn in the misty morn
Stand shadowless like silence, listening
To silence.” — Thomas Hood, from “Ode: Autumn” (1827)
