Frosty Leaves

It is amazing how much difference a little bit of sun, or lack there of, can make. We were driving through South Pender Island, not far from the Enchanted Forest walk, when I spotted these frosty leaves tucked away in the shade. It was the first bit of frost we had ever personally experienced on the island, and somehow the frost on these leaves looked magical. Up close the leaves looked almost as if they were coated in sugar.

The cold fingers were certainly worth suffering to be able to capture the images of these beautiful leaves.
