For One Word Sunday

Yesterday was one of those beautiful, frost-decorated mornings, although with no wind, it thankfully wasn’t as cold as it this area can be! The weekend had been warm, so the bit of the path that’s paved was clear. The rest was an icy 3-D record of the footprints of every person and animal walking that path before the freeze. Made walking quite a chore as you can imagine, up on the ridges, slip down into the prints, so I tried to stick to the edges where the snow crunched but I didn’t slip and slide.

However, in the low spots of the pavement, the leftover water froze again, doing its bit to beautify my walk.

Looked at from a different angle.

Although the back paths, followed mostly by animals, yielded no animals, I did come across very shallow areas that were water when it was warmer. They were beautiful, but crunchy. I’m sure to any animals in the area it was like a thunder clap.

After two days of frozen beauty, I woke yesterday to almost 40 and all the ice gone. I imagine our neighbor’s tree is quite relieved, although much less sparkly.
