Beautiful and tasty!

(No, this is not a cooking show!)

Grandmother! What big teeth you have!
Grandmother! What unusual weather we are having! We are feeling the effects of an inversion, which makes it colder at the lower elevations than it is up in the Cascades. Can you believe I'm staying bundled in wool and polarfleece from morning till night and people are snow skiing at the area resorts in shirtsleeves?


Yesterday morning we awoke to a fresh accumulation of hoar frost. I bundled up and headed out to do chores as quickly as possible in order to get to church on time – and kept getting derailed by beauty. Then, on my way back to the house, I got derailed by this:







 Silly Annabelle. What a hoot!

That's it from the funny farm at . . .

At first I thought that was going to be a story kinda like a flag pole, but I see she is methodically cleaning off wire by wire LOL .... great pictures, enter those in some contests too, should be a winner in there.

More gorgeous pictures! And those of Annabelle truly are unique. I agree with Tombstone Livestock . . . those would be a winner in a contest!

Glad to be of educational service, Winderly and Angora Amora! ;-)

Yes, Astrid, she seemed almost entranced while eating the frost off the wires.

TL and Mama Pea, I probably would have deleted my originals after posting them here but for your comments. I'll hang onto them now and see what happens; thanks!

Yes, Mary Ann, with relish!

Thanks, Ruth; I thought so, too.

Ooooo! Ice cream!

Light on the cream and butter, but it must taste lovely nonetheless.

Yes, entranced is really the right word for the expression of her face. :D I didn´t know before, google helped.
