The dark plant in the back is ‘Black Negligee’ actaea. Behind ‘Black Stockings’ is the Incrediball hydrangea. To the right is the native tall meadow rue, Thalictrum polygalum. To the left is self-sown flowering tobacco. Look carefully and you can see ‘Concord Grape’ spidewort in the center of the image.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
