Photo Friday: mother nature decorates

Wednesday I awoke to very cold air inside and out.  In the dark I hadn’t  a clue as to what had happened while I slept.  A bit later I braced myself for the cold,  and properly geared up,

I stepped outside…

~*~

In twenty-five degree air

my nose stung from the cold,

my fingers went numb,

but it mattered not. 

The Farmlet had become enchanted!

Have a blessed weekend!

    Those pictures are so beautiful. Every time I read your posts, they make me want to go back “home”. I dearly miss the farm life. What a blessing it is for you to wake up there every morning.

      Yvonne, thank you! I was surprised that so many of you liked this one best. The color is low key, but I think it is the frost on the edges of the leaves that really makes the picture.

    Lovely photos – but my goodness, that 25 degrees is a bit nippy. I’ll bet you had some ice to break this morning. We do have a bit of color now, since our last cold snap. The crepe myrtles are turning orange, the cypress are a beautiful mix of green and rust, and the Bradford pears are beginning now to show their burgundy leaves.

    I think hoarfrost and iced plants are just beautiful – especially if the ice isn’t so heavy as to cause problems. Enjoy the wintry beauty – I hope you have inside tasks for the weekend!

    Your photos are truly gorgeous, especially the oak leaf in its herbal slumber, and the light is so perfect Kincaid himself couldn’t have done better; )

      Thank you! 😀

      Laurie, I am so glad I got out there and took these, because this kind of weather is so rare here. Who knows when, or if, I will ever see this again? Although… the Mountain Farmlet may have its own winter delights! We shall see what she reveals when we move.

So how about that? Go on; say something!
