A Frosty Morning in Lincolnshire

These first three pictures were taken just by the roadside.  

The light was fantastic.

Nandina domestica - an evergreen shrub that has these lovely reddish purple leaves when young  and in the winter.  It is frost hardy, but can only stand temperatures down to -5C ..... 

... so no harder please Mr Frost! 

Taxus baccata fastigiata aurea - an upright golden Yew.  A great evergreen shrub that gives a garden real presence, with it's upright habit it looks like an exclamation mark in the garden.

Even the tennis court netting looked mysterious with the frost clinging to it!
