First Frost

Frost covers the petals of Yvonne's Giant Salvia.
Russian sage bloom in frost.

The yard was largely cloaked in white this morning as we received our first frost. I covered some of my showier annuals and the herb bed, which is still doing well. I love the look of frost clinging to blooms and leaves, but know what it means. The gardening season is slowly coming to an end.

  1. We had frost last night here in WI too. I did not get any lovely pictures though. Yours are wonderful! I have a yard covered in multi-colored blankets this morning trying to protect the annuals, hope it worked as there is nice weather forecast after tonight. Hope yours pulled through as well.

  2. I covered my tender roses and took the herb pot inside the porch Saturday night. But, I’m not sure we really needed to right here in the heart of the city. I didn’t see any frost here.
