Frost pockets

Earlier today in Queenswood, tucked away from the warmer, sunnier margins, the temperature dropped and a dusting of frost covered the low lying plants. These Ivy leaves caught my attention, the edges highlighted with a fine outline of frost.

This spot marked the transition between the clear and frosty vegetation.

Settled on top of the ivy and brambles, were an assortment of last season's leaves made up of Oak, Beech and Maple.

A couple of metres on these deeply veined green Bramble leaves dusted with frost stood out against the muted terracottas of Beech leaves and colourless dried stems.
