The snow and frost that held most of Germany in its grip last week is gone by now, but before it left, it still gave us a beautiful morning with bright blue skies and hoarfrost covered branches.
Hoarfrost usually doesn’t last long and indeed it was gone by noon. However, I was able to take some photos beforehand. No special locations, just my weekly grocery haul.

Every tree along the street is covered in hoarfrost.
It’s the same in the other direction. Hoarfrost covered trees all along the street.

Hoarfrost most typically forms on bare branches, but this oak tree next to my home, which doesn’t lose its leaves until spring, got frosted over as well.
The Groot colony that has taken root on Brinkum cemetery, got frosted as well.
