Frosty afternoon walk (Coombe Wood)

Gnarled trees in the other car park over the road.

Icy pond.

Little rose hips.

I was surprised to see how much frost there still was at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The crystals were quite long.

The circle of fallen leaves was still visible in the frost.

Daytime moon.

 Frosty wild carrot seeds. 

Radiating contrails. 

Sunlight on tall grasses. 

I could hear happy children's voices in the distance - "Coming ready or not",  "Found you!" and the sound of their laughter. 

Frosty fern.

 Frosty Korean Pine cone. 

Callicarpa berries with frost crystals.

Masses of acer seeds. 

 Camelia buds showing colour. 

 Trees in the sunshine. 

 The scent around this area was delicious. 

Frosty leaves - red stems. 

Lop-sided beech tree - 

Frosty Yew arch. 

Deep red/brown leaves dusted with frost. 

Looking across the sundial at the frosty lawn. 

 Long frost crystals on the winter bedding plants. 

 Frosty white pansies. 

I remembered to go and look at the big rose hips this time.

The gardener was tidying the courtyard flower beds, and feeding and mulching them.

Frosty purple pansy. 

Reflecting rocks. 

Looking across the pond - ice and frost. 

Yellow flowers (mahonia?) on the way to the car park. 

Thank you very much for joining me.
