Hoar frost’s sugary glaze enlivens area


It was an overcast late November morning, the grass splintered by hoarfrost, and winter grinning through the gaps in the clouds like a bad clown peering through the curtains before the show begins.”— Author: John Connolly

What does Mother Nature do to help combat the pre-winter blues? She mercifully creates a magical covering of hoar-frost that adds a glistening patina of moisture that adds  a new life and dimensionality to the drab carcasses of the exposed shrubs and bushes that have shed their leaves during the autumn season. The clear coating of moisture adds zip and panache to an otherwise lackluster landscape. — gc
