The "Frost Fairy"

A few mornings ago the "Frost Fairy" danced in my garden ..... these are some of the plants that she tapped her wand with ?










Mornings like these .. well I wish I had taken many, many other pictures ... but the Frost Fairy was freezing something else ? wink wink
One note .. this was an amazing event that had almost individually frozen the tree leaves .. they actually made noises as they fell in the garden .. I can't describe how it felt other than magical ?

You've really captured the beauty of the moment, Joy! These frosty photos are lovely. But in my garden I have only the remnants after Jack has left--a lot of brown, mushy plants:)

Darla said...

First, your header photo is just beautiful! The 'Frost Fairy' does leave behind the magic that makes the prettiest photos....nice Joy!

Rebecca @ In The Garden said...

Joy, you make frost seem lovely, I want to hide & cry lol! Beautiful pictures, and the sound of the leaves must have been wonderful to hear. :)

The frost fairy was busy in your garden. These are some of the pretties of the fall garden.

Hello Rose girl ! Thank you so much!
Hey I have those very same remnants as well girl ... I just didn't point the camera in their direction ? LOL

Darla girl thank you : ) I so wish I had taken more pictures it was just one of the most beautiful mornings possible during this time of the year.

Hello there Rebecca girl : )
I can't find the right words to express how those moments felt .. it was profound, I know that sounds dramatic but I think almost every gardener has moments like that at some time in their life and they "get it" .. I know you DO : )

Lisa girl the frost fairy was one busy career gal that made sure she did her job ! LOL

Carol said...

Lovely frosty images Joy! You had a light weight fairy about . . . she had a lighter touch. Oh but we know it is only a matter of time. ;>)

GardenJoy4Me said...

Carol girl I was just over at your place drooling over the sights that you see with that perfect Atlantic ocean coast .. I miss it all the time. Spectacular pictures girl !!!
Congrats on your son too : ) We are in the same club ! haha

What a beautiful job she did giving all your beautiful plants a dusting of frost. :)

Love you look, Joy! Frost hits some things nicer than others, doesn't it? I have never seen leaves freeze like that, I see what you mean about the noise.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Racquel girl i thin she should have a pay raise for the quality of work she is performing ? LOL

Sandy .. it was one of those remarkable moments when you have magic in the garden .. I regret not taking more time and more pictures but I am grateful for the ones I captured : )

Kathleen said...

Wow, your frost fairy left some serious magic behind. We had some frost this morning but I only took one photo of it ~ now it's snowing!
Guess what? 'Maypop' didn't return. I didn't think it would ~ it just wasn't happy ~ I never found the right spot for it and moved it too many times for it to ever get established. Maybe someday I'll try again? I did buy another passion vine and although it grew well it never bloomed. Maybe I just have bad luck or a black thumb with that family?

Love the frost on those leaves. Makes them way more beautiful.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Kathleen girl both you and I must have a wicked brown thumb when it comes to those vines .. I had a wonderful one a few years ago but since then I never seem to have any luck .. and certainly not one as a perennial one HERE ! haha
OMG ! you have snow .. I guess it won't be long here now too ;-)

Hello there visioplant ! Thank you for stopping by : ) YES ! frost does make a beautiful impression on pants doesn't it ?

Thanks for stopping by blush and bees! Your pictures are amazingly beautiful. I can't remember leaves here ever looking that gorgeous with frost; maybe my eyes will be open for the first time this winter. If you would like to put me on your blogroll I would be most honoured! Another Canadian gardener, Jenn

~mel said...

Very pretty frost fairy photos ~ thanks for sharing!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hello there G-in-a-S ;-)
Those are really special moments when I can catch an intense frost like that .. I only wish I had taken more photos of course ! LOL

Thanks Kiki girl .. I have been experimenting a bit and it is less stressful ? than I thought to change things .. phew ! almost fun? LOL

Hello Jane and yes ! I count myself fortunate indeed to be at the right place at the right time to capture these gorgeous leaves : )

Hello there Jenn : ) I always like to hear back about being placed on my blog roll .. I don't want to grab and run with it ? LOL .. Yes .. there are a lot of pictures even when my garden goes to sleep for the winter .. I just can't help myself when I see something that strikes me : )

Hello mel thank you ! and thank you for stopping by !

GardenJoy4Me said...

You are very welcome Bev ! thanks for dropping by mine too ! : )

gittan girl it must be getting rather COLD where you are too right ? Soon we will be up to our "blanks" in the white stuff ? LOL

Crafty Gardener said...

The frost fairy was around this morning too. Did you get some more photos?

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi Linda .. I am just trying to get outside now but we didn't have a really heavy frost .. it has been very warm here and the frost isn't showing up as well, darn it! : )

Msrobin said...

I've been too wimpy to go out and see what the frost fairy has been doing to my garden. Brrrr! But yours are gorgeous. Maybe tomorrow morning I'll go out. Or maybe I'll just stay inside all warm and cozy! LOL

GardenJoy4Me said...

Robin girl it was just the magic of the moment that caught me .. I was out there in my BIG FUZZY PINK housecoat so I was quite a sight .. but then again .. not too many people out that early in the morning ? haha
Stay in and keep those toes warm girl! hahaha
