Brrr - it's chilly!

I found myself frantically running around the garden this morning trying to capture the effects of last night's hoar frost before the sun melted it all away. This Clematis is still bravely flowering in spite of the icy chills it's been receiving all week. It was a magical time to be in the garden - the sunshine outlined everything with golden rings; there was a steady background drip, drip, drip as the frost melted away, accompanied by the soft falling of the few remaining leaves off the trees onto the ground below.
