Frosty morning

The sun was just warming up a blanket of frost that had settled over the woolly thyme and heathers last night. The foliage of this heather (Calluna Vulgaris Wickwar Flame) is lime green all summer with pink blossoms, but in the colder months, when it's not hiding under a blanket of snow, it turns an eye catching shade of red.
