Raspberry Leaves/ Today's Flowers

Frost on red leaves on raspberry (Rubus) plant

In mid Autumn, the leaves on raspberry plants turn bright red. Here the morning frost looks a lot like sugar or salt.

Brrrrrr... Feels very cold! And I also saw your beautiful picture of the first snow over there! Well, I guess I even prefer snow than cold rain at + 3 Celsius...
God bless you!

So very lovely! Haven't seen frost for a long time, but a couple of times here in Colorado I've been out scraping the car windshield!

That's a beautiful shot of the raspberry leaves with frost. We had our first hard freeze last night but I couldn't make myself get dressed to go outside to shoot the frost before the sun warmed it. Oh well, hopefully next time I won't be so lazy.

I'm never up early enough to take pix of the frost before it melts at this time of year! Love the red leaves.
