Frosty

No snow in Edinburgh but plenty of frost as I walked along the Water of Leith this morning! I like how the harts-tongue fern in the above photo stands out so clean and green against all the frost! You can clearly see the brown spore cases on its fronds too. I took several photos of the moss below, but not sure any of them were really sharply enough in focus.

Odd that you are so much further North than us and yet have no snow. Ours has practically gone now but really heavy frosts at night.

I'm surprised you have green plants. It will be several months before we have greenery here so close to Canada.

The frost picture is beautiful, so lacy-looking. Here it is just drab brown-grey everywhere. It has been a very blah winter, with almost no snow, but still a long way till we see any green.

Great photos - we are in the mild day-frosty night mode here now too.

I love the way frost outlines and emphasizes the shapes. We have snow in eastern Canada, but our river marshes look like your photo.
