While my first reaction to seeing a heavy frost in the morning is, “Oh, No,” after I get outside and start looking around I always begin to see some unique possibilities for photos. That is what happened this morning. Here are a couple of images of lupine plants in the frost.
The photo above shows what most of the lupines look like now. They have reached maturity, let go of their seeds, and the brown empty pods still dangle from the dead stem. The photo below shows a lupine that got a really late start this summer and was still in flower when the frost hit.
