First hard frost

This morning we woke to the first serious frost of the Autumn with the water in the fountain well frozen and all the plants and grass edged with silvery white. The overnight temperature went down to minus 3 deg C - which probably seems quite tropical to those poor souls in New York State who've been digging themselves out of 6 foot drifts this week.

Frost-edged ferns

Pretty, frost-edged Japanese anemone leaves
Frosty grasses and reeds obscure the pond
