Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

This morning, which, with any luck, will be our last frosty morning in a while, I went out to take photos of some of the collapsed foliage. Frost does add a lot of beauty to dead and dying plants at this time of year.

Tetrapanax leaf

Hardy Geranium and oak leaf

Self-sown Cerinthe major

Cardoon leaves looking like velvet

Sedum 'Autumn Joy'

Sedum 'Angelina'

Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy' looks like ribbon

There's still plenty out there in the garden that no amount of frost will improve.
