early morning frost










The days are noticeably colder recently. I've had gloves in my pocket for a week or so, today was chilly enough to wear them.

Early yesterday morning I headed into the garden to take some photographs. The sun was low, just peeking over the back of the house. Much of the garden was still in shadow and the long grass glistened, crispy underfoot.

Still this garden is not familiar. It seems every time I venture out there I discover something I didn't notice the last time. I wandered up and down taking in all of the little details. There was plenty of birdsong, but otherwise it was silent and so very peaceful.

I gathered a handful of cuttings... a rosehip, lavender, seed heads and roses to arrange into a simple posy for the living room. You can find more photographs of the posy I made in yesterday's post, here.

  3. Ahhh so delicate - and I am so jealous! I've been praying for frost one morning so I can get out into the woods and get some good shots but it's just not happening here at the moment. I never thought I'd be keeping my fingers crossed for it to get colder but I am!
    Keep on enjoying it - and I'm getting seriously inspired by your lovely posies x

    Thanks for joining in again *passes hot chocolate to keep cold hands warm*

  7. I had to drive to Harrogate this morning and the views across the Dales were so, so beautiful, I wanted to pull over and take a million photos. Frost and early morning light is a magical combination.

    Thanks for your comment today - it made me think and I replied in the comment thread. I think talented makers like you who produce beautiful, well priced and individual pieces are a MILLION miles away from the pushy ads and high street frenzy. I love your work and hope you have masses of orders as you deserve to be very successful. x

    1. I would really love to visit Yorkshire one day, it looks so very beautiful!

      That's so kind of you to say Gillian, thank you so much!! I've been working on Christmas products for a couple of months but don't want to mention it too early as I agree, the frenzy of Christmas (which seems to start earlier every year) is just too much! x

  11. Great photos! The frost makes everything look nice. I'm always amazed at how things can look so different from hour to hour, day to day, week to week, year to year. It is wonderful to notice the changes all around us. Have a great weekend!
