On the way to the trading shed this morning I detoured to have a quick look round the plot.  There had been a hard frost last night and at 10.00 am it was still around zero, although it was bright and sunny.

Frosty blackberry leavesFrosty grass path & lavendersThese were frosty leaves on the blackberry bush, and here’s the grass path from the shed to the roadway with lavenders along the right hand edge. Being still in the shade it was all looking very wintry.

Near the trading shed was this orange fungi growing on a tree stump which caught my eye.

    What an interesting Fungus. I really must learn a little more about them.
    Frost does enhance everything making even ordinary things seem so beautiful. It’s chilly here too, I’m trying to summon some enthusiasm to walk the dogs.xxxxx

      Snowbird like you I’d like to learn more about them. Yes it turns it all into a sort of winter wonderland doesn’t it, as does snow of course. I hope that the dogs got their walk. xx

    It’s very cold here today too, lots of frost about. I think I’ve seen more different kinds of fungi about this year than ever before, it must be down to all the wet weather we’ve encountered this year.

    • Flighty says:

      Jo plenty of frost everywhere over the weekend by the sound of it. Yes damp conditions are ideal so it’s not surprising that we’ve seen lots this year. xx

  3. We’ve had a few frosts already,now back to mist and drizzle today 😦

    The leaves are crystalline and the funghi set off their ‘sugared’ topping.

    Great photo of a very interesting fungus. Have you identified it? Looks just like an iced bun!

    “Jack Frost nipping at your nose” kind of weather. The touch of frost does add a sparkle to the wintry landscape. Around 9C here, so milder than the average which is 7C. Are you wearing your scarf yet? I’m sure a toasty cup of hot tea went down well at the shed.

    It hasn’t really warmed up here at all today but with the sun out it all looks rather beautiful

    Frosty in Yorkshire too, but lovely to see the sun shining.

    There appears to be a face on the fungus (left side)! 🙂

    No frost here, though we’re still getting rain that I hadn’t been expecting. Had the fire on tonight and that was very cozy with a cup of hot chocolate. Hope you’re staying cozy.

    The frosty weather has been welcome here. Much more seasonal and a break from all that rain. Although saying that it’s milder here today and raining. Love the photo of the frosted fungi. Such an amazing colour. Have a great week.

    Love the comments. “Sugared” is an apt description and so is “iced bun” to describe the fungus!
