CRYSTAL WHITE

 For the first morning in a week...

The thermometer doesn't read below zero. 
That's minus eighteen and descending in metrics.

Instead we have lace crystals.

Even the scruffy cone flowers in my garden are spiffed up 

Nature is amazing.

Three and Five are big winners. We have the slightly warmer temps here as well but no lace on the trees.

I'm so glad we get hoar frost..it makes the cold beautiful. Other that that I'm not a friend of the cold.

Look how those little things grew. Like a the sugar crystal experiment in grade school.

You would have a heyday with our hoar frost. It mainly keeps to the ground, and looks like spider web traps. Or plastic bag litter.

Geez, Leenie - all these comments mentioning HOARS- I didn't see any...Just beautiful chill factor, which we look back on fondly in a few years as the temperature soars and bakes us all like pigs in a blanket. Lovely shots- stay cool!

We haven't had much frost yet this winter - but we are being threatened with snow at the weekend. This has brought about a rash of shock horror headlines - as if snow in January were some rare terrifying thing, instead of a normal winter occurence!!
Love the photos!
