Spring Frost

The weather conditions at the moment are quite unpredictable, with sun and rain-showers in the day and clear frosty nights. This morning was misty with frost on the low vegetation, I decided to develop this macro image of a frozen Nettle as a black and white photo, to enhance its graphical character and I really like the result. 

When frost come late in the spring, gardeners often worry about the effects it will have on their early spring flowers and tolerance to freezing temperatures depends on the plant. Spring bulbs, such as tulips, crocus and daffodils, tolerate a light frost. Plants located close to the house may receive some protection.
