The cold weather after the hottest November on record has given us some wonderful frost structures on plants, buildings and spiders’ webs.

Here are a few on a walk from home to Broadstreet Common.

I don’t think I have seen this spiky type of frost structure before. Is it wind during the formation that has caused it?

The frost highlights how many insects are silently around. The fence owner would be surprised I suspect.

And a few more from elsewhere in or near the borough…
