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! … Continue reading Another frosty morning
Quite a few years ago, I published this gallery of photographs I'd taken in the province of Dobrogea in Romania. I've been going through my catalog lately, re-discovering the places I've visited and photos I haven't yet edited, so I thought I'd put together another gallery of photographs for you.

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!

The ground was warm so we didn't get a proper snow cover … Continue reading An April snowfall
It's been snowing today. I woke up to little snowflakes dancing in a light wind in our courtyard. It's been like that all day. Every time I looked out the window, it put a smile on my face. There's something so beautiful about a February snowfall. It's one of winter's last few efforts before it … Continue reading A February snowfall
