It was cold during the night and frost was heavy on the ground when I entered the main garden early this morning. Icy formations accentuated leaf shapes and stem structures, lending elevated status to the humble remnants of the garden season just past.
In the meditation circle the frost’s silvery-white seemed to enhance the colors of the plants.
The textural contrast between hard red stepping stones of the path and soft mounds of thyme was made stronger by the thyme’s frosty coating.
The weather is warming again for the weekend and into next week high temperatures will be in the sixties, but today there was a hint of winter.
Last night the sky was clear for the annual Geminid meteor shower. Despite street lamps and traffic headlights in our neighborhood we were able to watch meteors streaking through the sky. Awesome!
