We had our first frost last week, and boy, was it cold Sad. I braved it for a few minutes to take some images of the frozen verbascum outside my front gate, thought it made a rather pleasing abstract.

The ice crystals coating the vegetation makes for interesting close-up studies.......difficult to choose a favourite from V 1 to 3 so I am plumping for your tripytch in V 4, Carol.
We have had a few frosty nights this winter but so far many fewer than last winter.......now damp and windy again.

Quite surprised to see frosty images from you - somehow didn't think it gets that cold over your way - mind you we do get frost in SA, so I suppose a bit of a stupid assumption - ok finally to the shots - lovely frosty images and I'm still tossing the coin between V3 & V4 - whilst pondering the frost in your area WinkWink - Ina
