We have rarely experience clear frosty days in recent years as climate change is showing its hand. So when one does come along it makes our garden look very special. In the second week of January we woke to an extremely cold morning and Jack Frost has decorated the front garden with whiteness. In the gravel garden, The Beth Chatto Garden, we have many tall grasses and perennials which we leave overwinter for wildlife and for days when frost or snow appear.
Here is a selection of photos I took that morning before the sun came around and melted the frost away.
