Frost - Part umpteen


Hello, I seem to be bombing you with photos in these days! Well, today was a pretty day and I do love ice and snow and I need to cheer myself up...

The temperatures have gone down but there's practically no snow.  Normally the plants would be safely resting under the snow by now.  I have tried to protect the more delicate plants from the hard frost, but will that be enough?  The forecasts don't give much hope. *sigh* The first plant and seed catalogues have arrived, but - blimey! - with this capricious weather one feels baffled and demotivated.

What I can do is to follow my motto: "Keep Calm and Take Photos". :)






















The photo below is from the same glazed porch (with a red wooden wall) as the "Ice flowers" thumbnail you can see on the Popular posts list:

  7. Wonderful frost photos. There's no snow here, either, which isn't unusual, but I noticed some on the hills around our town this morning. Perhaps we will see a few flakes. My sweet husband gave me a macro lens for Christmas and I'm looking forward to taking photos of delicate frost as you've shown.
    I hope your world is soon sleeping cozily under a blanket of snow.

  11. Taiteelliset, sinun näköisesi kuvat & kannatettava motto! Itse yritän selättää talviturhautumista kirjoihin uppoutumalla. Eilen olikin loistava aurinkoinen pakkaspäivä, tänään taas harmaaksi lauhtunut. Well, elämä on!

  12. Aivan ihania kuvia. Meilläkin paistoi eilen aurinko, mutta en valitettavasti ennättänyt kuvaamaan. Tänään on sitten ihan pilvistä, mutta onneksi pakkasta ei ole enempää kuin 8 astetta, eli hyvä ulkoilusää.

  13. Dear Sara,
    You've made very nice pictures of the ice! And the frost flowers are so beautiful!
    From the elements you can do nothing that will let you get over you and you can enjoy it.
    I hope you vulnerable plants will be impacted. But it is also the cycle of nature that you always do again surprised.
    Thank you for your nice comment on my log!
    And I wish you a nice of chance of the year and a blessed 2016!

    Love, Gerry
