Earliest morning frost, and happy happy days!

































You have all been very kind and I thank you so much for your support.

Some happy days are here again as early morning frost has left the meadows around here pure sparkly diamond strewn! Gone are the prevailing grey south westerly weather systems which tend to engulf Ireland for weeks on end. For two days we haven't had a cloud in the sky and as I look out from my office window I am delighted to witness "the actual" sun and right now "the actual" moon as well.

It won't last.....but....

How's the weather and how is it affecting your mood in your part of the world?

  2. Our weather today in Lancashire has been beautiful sunshine, but cold. Great for walking, or pottering around the garden. There was a lovely golden autumn glow as the sun went down. I love days like this. Your photos are beautiful!

  3. Your weather is appropriate. Ours is not. Slightly chillier this morning but mostly still warm (though not at sun-bathing level!). We don't have much frost here any year - but I do think it pretty.

  4. Those icy pics make me cold! ;) But they are very pretty. Good to hear the fog has lifted, and the sky is clear. It's been windy here - too windy to work outside, so I'm hibernating for a while.

  5. Rośliny pięknie bielą ozdobione, ale marzną :-(. W Polsce jest jeszcze piękna, ciepła jesień i oby jak najdłużej.Pozdrawiam

  6. How quickly the seasons have passed and into frostyness once again. I've not had any here yet in my highland neck of the woods, but feel a sure nip in the air some days and know its not far off. Your pictures certainly capture the magical charms of chill, brrrrr and beautiful.

  7. I really like your frost images. It looks so delicate on the foliage, yet it is anything but as cold and sharp as ice is.

  8. You must be snapping pics with your breath held, otherwise that lovely frost would melt! Frosty mornings here in Connecticut, USA give way to heavy-sweater-only noontimes. Our clocks just went back, so the mornings are bright again, making it easier to get up for school and work.

  9. Lovely photographs, but also firm confirmation that the winter is coming...! The start of my worrying as to which plants will not make it through. Pathetic I know, but its the truth.

  10. After a wet week here in Wales we had a beautiful weekend. Still no frost. Thought we might have one last night but a bank of cloud pushed in and raised the temperatures. Today is cold and damp and grey just the sort of winter's day I hate. You can feel the cold getting into your bones. Love the frosty photos.

  11. Beautiful pictures of the garden in frost...the weather has warmed during the days but we are getting frosts at night. Not much blooming and the days are getting darker...

  12. It was a fabulous weekend up in North Tipperary. Gorgeous bright sun but chilly. Your frosty images are just beautiful as always. I always love seeing what you've taken - keep it up.

  14. Wow frost already, always so beautiful! Today has been dark and cold all day which is never much fun, much prefer bright, crisp Autumn days when the leaf colours glow. Hugs, Catherine x

  15. Plants are beautifully decorated with white, but freezing :-(. In Poland, yet beautiful, warm autumn, and hopefully a long time. Yours

  16. Lovely images! Frost has a way of adding such beauty. I am energized by autumn and all the changing beauty. The holidays are always a welcome bit of cheer as well.

  17. These photos are wonderful. We haven't had frost yet. I don't like to get up early, though I have to for work, and I am not a lover of frozen weather. But after seeing your frosty images I am determined to get out in the early morning when the frosts do come.

  18. Beautiful photos! Here in Southeastern U.S. it's actually been beautiful all weekend, perfect for going outside and bulb planting. It's definitely lifted my spirits after a long October!

  19. In the hands of a fine photographer the frost is as pretty as snow-- well done. Wishing you all the good comforts of the season.

  20. Just as I got used to those lovely frosty mornings, sunny days, diamonds in the grass and gossamer webs...the cloud returns!

  21. Beautiful blog, I read from Hong Kong. The humidity here is finally dying down but we'll never see any crisp frosts. People are finally crawling out from their air-con and dehumidifiers to sit outside and hike.

  22. WOW! Lovely pictures.

    Keep up the good work - really like your blog.
