Explore Outdoors ~ After Frost

Even after frost, some flowers hold onto their beauty. When you look closely, you can see the details: the hairs on the leaves, the disc flowers in the center, the delicate petals that curl back. You might even find some seeds that you can shake out and let fall to the ground - or collect and plant in your own garden.

As you walk around your neighborhood, local parks, and even your backyard, look for the beauty in frost-killed flowers. Do you notice details you didn't see when they were green and showy?

If you are really lucky - and outside in the early morning - you might even catch frost on the petals!

  1. It is so seldom we get a real hard frost here, we don't see these kinds of things. I miss that. Thanks for the post.
