Ice flowers


Fern frost is a great name for window frost: these patterns do look like some exotic, lush plants. I like this photo also because of the red background colour. Behind the window of a small glazed porch, there is a red wooden wall:



Beautiful flowers "grow" also on painted surfaces...



This is not a flower, this is... uh...



The weather is cold, this night we may reach -30° Celsius (-22 Fahrenheit).

At this time of year, the sun doesn't climb much above the horizon, but it's there! These flowers were sparkling golden in the rays of the sun:



Enjoying the beauty of winter, but dreaming of spring...

  10. What wonderful photos! When I was a child I would often see frost like this on our bedroom windows. My Mother told me "Jack Frost" painted the windows at night.

  11. You're a gal that appreciates winter Sara when you can find frost flowers to share. I thought it was cold here but you're beyond that and into freezing. :-)
    I'm dreaming of spring as well...

  12. (Ja kuka sanoi ettei kuurankukkakuvat ole hienoja..;) ). Olen ihan lumoutunut, niin hienoja kuvia ihanista kuurankukista!! Ihanaa että luonto tekee meille kaunista katseltavaa talvellakin, tässä ei ollenkaan ehdi kaivata kesää, kun on niin hirmuisesti kaikkea henkeäsalpaavan kaunista meneillään ulkona (jos sinne tarkenee mennä)...

    1. Näitä kuvia ei ollut vielä, kun kävin ihastelemassa sinun kauniita kuurankukkakuviasi! Joskus on onnekkaita hetkiä, että huomaa jotain kaunista ja kun räpsii paljon kuvia, joistakin niistä tulee ihan hyviä. :)
      Talvinen luonto on tosiaan kaunis, mutta ainakin täälläpäin ollaan nyt hieman apeita, koska runsas lumentulo ja suojasään ja pakkasen vaihtelu on vahingoittanut varsinkin koivuja pahasti.

  14. Upeita , henkeäsalpaavia kuvia. Minulla laiskansuoni kireällä. Kuitenkin sain aikaan pienen pätkä siirtolaistarimaani.

    1. Kiitos, Kyllimarjaana! Olipa mukavaa kuulla Sinusta ja että olet postannut uutta! Menen lukemaan toista blogiasi heti huomenna, jos nämä sähkökatkot hellittävät. Vanhan läppärini akku ei näytä kovin kauan kestävän. Tapaamisiin! Ja hyvää uutta vuotta 2015! :)

  21. I love how you have captured this frost. I love the idea of calling it fern frost or frost flowers. Somehow, that makes it seem less freezing. We had -20 wind chill temperatures last week! So, this week while it is a bit warmer I want to get out for a walk.
