Ice drops

We’re at that stage now where the frost in the most shadowed corners doesn’t have time to thaw completely before night falls again. Even on a sunny day, the dewdrops have a core of ice.


You can see the bubbles in the frozen centre, like a tiny explosion.


And the hedgegrows are their own kind of explosion, with frost-dewy grass glittering everywhere in the setting sun.


As the sky darkens, the almost-thawed ice drops harden again into translucent pearls. Night has fallen over our part of the world, and soon everything will have fallen silent in the cold.
