After six days of almost continuous rain, the clouds finally went away yesterday. We woke up to beautiful blue skies and… freezing temperatures. Upper 20s to low 30s overnight, 65 degrees during the day. A huge range of temperatures that make it hard for my body to adjust throughout the day.
The surprise here has been the FROST. Lots of it! You see people scraping their car windshields in the morning. Sensitive plants have succumbed to frost. Bye bye my beautiful basil that kept on growing. Bye bye my zucchini that I wanted to pick next week.
But you know what I like best about frost? It’s beautiful! I noticed plenty of frost at my son’s school when I dropped him off yesterday so this morning, I grabbed my camera and managed to take these pictures. Remember you can click on any image below for a larger view. Let me know what you think!
I love how the frost flakes look like sprinkled sugar on this stem of grass!
Another thing I love about frost is how it reflects the sunlight so softly.
This photo gives a whole new meaning to ice plants, don’t you think?
Even though I don’t like to be cold, I’m looking forward to more frosty mornings so I can take more pictures of frost.
And now you have some great photos to use for “December” for your next year’s calendar. 🙂
That’s exactly what I thought when I took them this morning! That’s why I want to take some more this winter, to have a lot to pick from. I think frosty photos would look great of coasters, don’t you think?
Oh, yes. Then I can add to my collection. 🙂 (I bought two sets of four to give as gifts, but I ended up keeping one for myself. Oops…)
Well, as long as they are put to good use, that’s what matters, right? And when people come to your house and like the coasters, you know what to give them for next Christmas.
That’s true. But remember, I have very few people come to my home. Not a big socializer offline am I. 😉
Haha, if you didn’t already read Quiet: The Power of Introverts this year, I bet Santa would have brought you a copy!
Wow – those are so beautiful and it does look like sprinkled sugar! I love the blueish purple of that first one. I think we’re getting your rain now. Hopefully we’ll get some frost or snow too!
It’s great to see how frost can affect the colors of the plants (and kill them sometimes…). I want to make sure I can take more pictures of frost even though I don’t like it to be that cold here!
Love that 2nd shot. It’s been nippy here the past couple of days . . . should be 78 on Christmas. Yay!
We’ve had plenty of sunny Christmas days with 80-degree weather, even if it gets to 30 at night. I’m hoping for a warm Christmas day this year, hopefully with no rain.
