Farewell to frost?
The sun came out yesterday, and everything it touched was transformed with a million glittering diamonds. Winter still flaunted its iron-fisted grip in the shadows, though. Our weather is supposed to return to more normal patterns tomorrow. I will miss the magical beauty of this cold spell, if not the frozen footing in my riding arena nor the bucket brigade to keep the sheep in water!
When I downloaded the photo above from yesterday, I found photos I took on Sabbath when I was out walking Lance. This long-needled conifer is at the NW corner of our property, and has grown tremendously in the nearly 17 years we've lived here. These photos will probably be my final homage to hoarfrost this season – but then again, only a fool would try to predict the weather. :-)
That's it for today from . . .
