Through frosted glasses

September became October and offered the early riser a perfect lawn of lacy grass.

Crunchy frostiness underfoot. Tingling fingers encased in long-forgotten gloves.


The ghostly ground veiled in white offered the perfect contrast to the rich colours of trees and house.


A tree laden with rowan berries – a harbinger of a snowy winter. Peeking through the branches, a shy farm displays its new roof of frost, as if to say: At last! Autumn is here!

  6. Does this mean it’s going to be a long cold winter? Seems awfully early for frost…

    October 6, 2009 at 08:38

    • It IS very early for frost! Very early…

  7. Today it is humid and wet in West France – I think I’d prefer frost because it would kill all the midges.

  8. Brrrr! I can feel the icy fingers of winter flexing around the corner.

    It’s gorgeous, though I think the winter could wait just a tad longer, I’ll take snow any day over rain…and the frost is beautiful to look at and usually melts later in the day…wonderful!

  10. A beautiful place. The crunchy frost shots made my morning.

    October 6, 2009 at 10:13

  11. The white field leading to the colourful field was brilliantly beautiful. These are great times for photos.

  12. Lacy or icy grass? Wow, frost already. It’s slightly chilly in Vegas, too, because it’s only 76F (68F is 20C). Brrrr! Beautiful photos of the encroaching Scandinavian winter.

  13. pretty but isn’t it a bit early for frost??

    October 6, 2009 at 12:13

    • Yes – far too early! Poor us.

      October 6, 2009 at 12:34

  14. It would be nice without the frost on the grass ! Fortunately we still have warm weather! I don’t like automn and winter !

    October 6, 2009 at 13:27

    We are in the middle of a gorgeous “hot” spell, almost unheard of here. Some days it does rain, but it just seems like summer is grasping onto the edge of fall.

    What great shots, you have amazing colors, and details in those photos.

    And you are far ahead of us for color. Our leaves are just starting to turn now.

    This is what autumn should be about, not grey rain!

    Ooooh too soon, too soon! Lovely pics though. Stay warm x

    October 6, 2009 at 17:00

  22. What a lovely and poetic post!

    October 6, 2009 at 18:58

  23. Wow you do have quite a frost there. Great photos!

    October 6, 2009 at 19:05

  24. WOW … lovely post illustrating how your seasons are changing. Here in Southern California it’s still warm, dry, and windy … I wish it would RAIN ;–)
    Hugs and blessings,

    Hmm that sure is pretty, but it makes me sad. Coldness is on its way. The UK is so warm and muggy today, please don’t send that frost our way!

    October 6, 2009 at 23:17

  26. Great pictures and description of your frosted world. I especially like the red barn.

    October 6, 2009 at 23:26

  27. Oh, my, my, I love the frosted glass title! Your season has changed to fast? Where did summer go? Love the colorful foliage.

    Thanks for the visit.

    October 7, 2009 at 01:28

  28. It’s certainly pretty to look at. But I’d prefer to be somewhere warmer. Nice captures.

    October 7, 2009 at 01:30

  29. Wow!! that’s amazing photo & interesting view.

    October 7, 2009 at 02:31

  30. Okay, Lady Fi. Let me just say it. I’ve almost convinced myself that if I lived in such beautiful surroundings, I, too, could be a fabulous writer like you.

    Almost is the key word here. Almost.

    October 7, 2009 at 03:02

  31. I LOVED this. The colors are superb. The words the perfect frame.

    October 7, 2009 at 07:10

  32. Beautiful Pictures:) love the textures and the color of the nature.

    October 7, 2009 at 08:40

  33. You are simply an amazing talent. Amazing.

    October 7, 2009 at 14:04

  34. Whoa! Not sure I’m ready for frosty mornings! But I love your photos, especially the middle one.

    October 7, 2009 at 16:08

  35. Early frost sure makes for pretty pictures.

    October 7, 2009 at 17:27

  36. Brrrrrrr. It looks cold. But thanks for sharing. I never get to see frost anymore. The pics are fabulous.

    October 7, 2009 at 18:15

  37. Wow, I had no idea that Sweden got such amazing autumn colours! Or that it was cold enough for frost in October. I’m from Canada, and we have a reputation for being a cold country, but we usually don’t start getting frost like that in Toronto until November (mind you, we’re quite far south). The frost is beautiful though — it really does look like lace on the grass! Keep up the beautiful photos.

    October 8, 2009 at 02:34

  38. You got heavy frost early..hope it isn’t a SIGN! That second photo is beautiful. Time to get out the long johns:)

    There’s something so beautiful about this time of the year – even if it is cooooold.

    October 8, 2009 at 09:32

  40. It isn’t supposed to frost or snow in October! *e*

    October 8, 2009 at 12:41

  41. Bluefish

    Wow, already? I know I’ll miss snow this winter😦

    October 8, 2009 at 16:41

  42. Beautiful!

    October 8, 2009 at 17:04

  43. Everything is so beautiful, isn’t it?

  44. One of the things that amazes me about different countries is structure colors. USA surburbia seems to LOVE drab. Tan, beige, white, and brown are the typical fare here, especially in California in the last 30 years. We are desperately afraid of color, apparently. My son LOATHES this and wants to live with vibrancy. And I agree. I want things to work and not be garish but my motto has always been: Life is TOO SHORT for BEIGE!! Love the house colors!

    October 9, 2009 at 19:10

  45. Wow! Such pretty pictures. Not ready for frost here (though it can’t be far away), but love how it looks where you are.

    October 10, 2009 at 04:23

  46. How beautifully written and the pictures are so wonderful as well. Just a magical place. It’s definitely autumn here but we don’t have so much frost yet but any day now.
