  1. A very hard frost indeed. So pretty, yet can be so devastating to tender plants.

    1. It's funny how weather can be so variable. I can't recall when we've had frosts so early here in Melbourne. But most of the plants seem to be surviving... hopefully they will continue to do so!

  3. My garden must be pretty sheltered as I just don't get frost like that. We get a little bit of the nature strip outside but the garden seems to retain just enough heat to keep it at bay. It is pretty though.

    1. It is pretty, and I do love crunching on frosty grass early in the morning, although I'd love it better if it didn't freeze any part of me not ensconced in multiple layers of clothing. I think I'm in a bit of a low area and maybe get almost a frost pocket effect which may be why my garden is a bit more frosty. Either way, its chilling hours for the apple and peach trees so I can't complain...

  4. Wow, very pretty pictures! And you'd never guess, but my veggies don't get that much frost and I am up here in the mountains just off the Snowy Mountains Hwy!

    1. Cheers. I have to say it has been unseasonably cold down here in Melb lately, so its probably an anomaly, but it is pretty and they do say frost makes brassicas, especially cabbage, sweeter and more tender... I haven't harvested one yet so I have no idea if its true.
