Hoar Frost on GrassJust a day or two back, a morning frost occurred in the area where I live. This, in itself, isn’t particularly remarkable: it’s winter, after all. But what is more special is that the cooling must have happened quite slowly, because the crystals were much larger an usual, even though the frost was not particularly severe. The result is this effect where the grass looks like candied angelica – rather pretty, I think.

It's kind to share!
