Hoarfrost - Hoar frost (also hoarfrost, radiation frost, or pruina) refers to white ice crystals, deposited on the ground or loosely attached to exposed objects such as wires or leaves. They form on cold, clear nights when conditions are such that heat radiates out to the open sky faster than it can be replaced from nearby sources such as wind or warm objects. Under suitable circumstances, objects cool to below the frost point of the surrounding air, well below the freezing point of water.
Gooseberries - You can propagate gooseberries is by cuttings rather than raising from seed; cuttings planted in the autumn will take root quickly and can begin to bear fruit within a few years. Those growing from seeds will rapidly produce healthy heavily yielding bushes. Get an excellent field book if you forage anything. Internet knowledge is not enough alone.
Berries In The Rain - Mornings that begin with a light rain are the perfect time to get out and enjoy nature. After a rain, the woods smell wonderful. They are fresh and inviting. On this morning's walk a found a tree with a few blueberries leftover that the birds did not pick over the winter. The rain droplets invited me to capture them.
