First Frost of the Year

This morning we had our first real frosty conditions of 2014. When I got up the outside temperature was -2.7C and most things were white over with frost.

By the time we went walk-about it had risen to -1.7C with a thin cloud cover:


On our return I took a few photos of the frost crystals.

This was Penny still a bit dopey and sore on her return from the vets last Wednesday. Nice sparky white teeth but two less than she went with. Poor lass, that is now four less than she had a year ago.  Tooth decay can be a major problem with retired greyhounds. She is still a bit sore but that hasn't blunted her appetite though she is on soft food until everything has healed.


  1. Nice macro of the ice crystals It's good to hear that Penny is okay..

  2. glad penny has you to love her.

    the frost is beautiful. very late in the year - heard you are having a very mild winter, there.

  3. It was pretty sharp and white John. Lovely images.

  4. Lovely photos! Glad Penny is on the mend.

  5. A lovely array of Jack Frost at work! Fascinating facets from his frosty frigid digits. (Try saying that 5 times fast!) Glad to hear that Penny is recuperating well. No fun at all being down in the mouth!
