A Frosty Morn

Hello everyone,
     Although we have had many beautiful warm sunny days this month ,we have had a white frost a couple of nights.So,early in the morning I went out with my camera to take a few shots of the garden etc. The photo above is from the dock my husband built over our new pond. I like how there is a mist rising from the water.Because the pond is new the water is still brown so it will be next year before it clears up-so I like it in sepia tones better this year.
I like the sunlight shining through the trees with the mist coming off the water in the background.

The roses look so pretty with a touch of frost and a light frost doesn't hurt them-they will still keep blooming until we get a hard frost.



The limelight hydrangea is turning pink.
This double peach daylily is still blooming.


Well, that was my first frosty morn of the season. Last night we had a warm rain but today the sun is shining and it is going up to 22 degrees Celsius.We are really enjoying all the sunshine as we did have a lot of rain in the summer.

Today I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday again.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Carolyn

I love the photos of the frost edging the roses. So pretty. Your pond is lovely and that dock with the chairs and the hammock in the trees - what a spot to relax! We haven't had frost here yet and are loving this sunny and warm weather although there's rain on the way for the weekend. Take care. Pamela

Dearest Carolyn,

Wow, what a difference with Georgia... It looks very pretty on your photos and the pons will look special next year when things will grow around it and make it blend into the landscape like it belonged for a long time.
Have a great weekend and stay warm!
Love to you,

They do look a bit chilly, yet the light crystals make them look quite elegant, too.

Hope you have a nice weekend.

Dear Carolyn,

Can't quite believe you had you first frosty evenings! In Holland it's still very warm for the time of year. I am still walking around in my summer dresses. It was 25 degrees Celsius today. You took beautiful photo's of the flowers. How pretty they look with a touch of frost!

Wish you a lovely weekend!

ALways a delight to stop by your lovely blog to see all that you share.

Autumn is here in Kansas and each passing day, the landscape grows into a colorful place with oranges, yellows and different shades of green.

Enjoying this time of year!

millefeuilles said...

Dreamy! I love frost and those roses touched with frost remind me of the sugared rose petals I adorn cakes with sometimes. The hydrangea is fantastic, isn't it?

Carolyn,
The frost on the flowers was just beautiful. You could almost feel a chill. I'll bet you have been enjoying your new pond. That was quite an undertaking. It will bring you so much joy as well as those of us who enjoy your beautiful photography skills.
Have a nice weekend.

Linda said...

Beautiful, Carolyn! Your new dock and the adirondacks look sooo inviting. Loved, too, the pics of the pond under the harvest moon earlier in the month...

Enjoy the warm weather this weekend. We are gearing up here for yet another hurricane...hope 'they' are wrong on this one, fingers crossed.

Run for the Cure is on Sunday. My neighbour and her girls and two of my nieces are running for me. Midge and I are joining again this year and will be cheering everyone on!!!

Hugs,
