We were greeted by more frost this morning, so of course I hopped outside to take photos. This winter... it's been such a non-winter that any cold weather gets me chipper. I took photos until I couldn't feel my fingers and I loved every minute of it. I love that crisp, fresh, winter morning air! [...]
Hoar frost is a strange term, isn't it? It comes from Middle English, circa 1300, is actually spelled "hoarfrost" over in England, and it means exactly what you'll see in the photos I took this morning in our garden. Enjoy!
Here are photos taken earlier today in our garden, after some heavy frost set in during the night. As much as I love fresh, white snow, especially during Christmas time, gorgeous frost like this is pretty nice, too.
