11/16/2022 a previous frost

Away from the shelter of the oak tree, lots of plants are getting frost, including the wine cups we grew from seed and planted last spring.
The rosettes will stay green all winter, I believe. They show off the frost beautifully as it avoids the veins, creating a pattern of frost with greener veins.
The frost hasn’t killed the apple leaves yet either.

    1. I wonder that too. Maybe the veins are a little darker and hold more radiant heat, or maybe the frost clings to tiny hairs on the leaves that aren’t present on the veins?
