Frosty Saturday morning brings a chilly walk along the quay looking at berries and frost covered flowers. The calendar changed from rainy November to cold crisp December. We're 6 for 6 for sunny days this month! Beauty berries are actually quite a small delicate berry. I managed to catch these ones with some sun shining on them for a change.
These winter pansies are living up to their name, covered in frost but putting on a pretty show.
The sun was just starting to creep into this raised bed of plants
This pansy has found the warmth of the sun and the frost is slowly melting.I'm not sure what type of berries these are, but they are a very deep black colour.
This bunch of rose hips stand out amongst the dying leaves.
This pincushion daisy is bearing up well against the frosty morning.
A bird's nest abandoned for the year, but brings hope for spring.
This hydrangea has dried on the bush and is still full of colour.

Enjoyed seeing your photos Sandi. While you are going to get the colder weather we in Australia will have to brace ourselves for the extreme heat! Regards, Nessie
