Lovely close-up!

It is a joy to see Old Man's Beard catching the light or frosty or dropping with snow - I love it. The close-up is so delicate and a good reminder to 'stop and stare' at familiar plants.

Thanks

Thanks Janet, I have to say that most of the OMB in this area is rather matted and bedraggled after the snow but this piece had retained its featheriness. I assume it was in the lee of the wind blown snow. Chris.
