Beauty...

The last few days have brought some beauty into our world as well. Don't you love the frost/snow on the fence. Obviously, it isn't windy at my house! Along the top of the fence is a wire the size of my pinkie finger with frost so thick it makes it at least 3 inches!

See the wire? See how thick the hoar frost (a deposit of needle-like ice crystals formed on a surface by direct condensation at temperatures below freezing point) is? Crazy cool!

I love my home.

What a lovely bunch of pictures, especially the last two. The frost sure looks neat on the fence, it is amazing how it piles up. We had a little bit of ice down here in the bird bath and a couple of puddles in s.e. FL a couple of weeks back and that was really cold for us.

Enjoy your winter beauty, and hang in there.

Beautiful scenes. We get hoarfrost here, but I don't think it gets as thick as yours.
