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.

Unfortunately, we haven’t had much snow since November when I took a wonderful walk in the gorgeous snow. Here’s another photo from that walk. Think you’re seeing double? Don’t worry, you are. There’s a gate that’s pulled back in the mornings at sunrise, although you can easily get around it if you like. (Don’t ask me how I know that!) I love the way the snow fills in the openings in the fence, creating a sort of black and white abstract.

It’s been much too long and even though I have to work today, I had to stop by and say hello and share a few photos from a recent walk in the park.  On this morning, not too many days ago, I saw a panorama of frost as I pulled out of the garage.  That made getting to the park as soon as possible much more urgent, as the moment the sun hits the frost, it tends to disappear and, although plants with drops on them make for wonderful photos, ’tis the season for frosty beauty!  Of all the mornings to sleep in just a little and not rush out the door.

It was still plenty cold when I arrived.  The geese were flocking, so to speak, on the river which, as I’ve said before, at this time of year resembles an avian runway at a local airport.  The noise level can get quite loud as groups of geese get ready to take off or land.  I wonder why they haven’t gone south to warmer climates, but bird brain has never been a compliment, has it?  🙂
