Freezing Fog

That’s just what we had…cold but amazingly beautiful.  Inside we tried our hand at freestyle pumpkin carving with varied resultsDSC02854.  I let the kids go at it…each to their own pumpkinDSC02855.  On the bright side when the lights are out and the candles are lit they all look pretty goodDSC02856.  Ever want to see the world through the eyes of a jack ‘o lantern?  Well now you canDSC02857.  The life of a pumpkin…while fascinating just couldn’t keep me from the frosted world outside..care for a cup of frosted tea or coffeeDSC02858?  The remaining leaves seem stunnedDSC02859.  The ice looks like it’s been touched by Jack Frost himselfDSC02860.  The grass seems stunned by this turn of frosty events…should it be green, brown or just snow coveredDSC02861?  I think the trees got the best coverage by the frosty artist’s touchDSC02862.  The sun was working to melt off the frost making interesting crackling sounds everywhereDSC02863.  Perhaps the leaves needed a shave anywayDSC02864.  The snow still looked like powdered diamondsDSC02865.  I quickly snapped up my pictures before the sun took away this momentDSC02866.  Many spray their trees with chemical flocking but have you seen the real dealDSC02867?  Each needle covered well…perfectly in factDSC02868.  Now we have a melt off…nothing looks all that beautiful at the moment but I come away grateful…I  not only enjoyed the moment myself but shared the brief winter scenery here with you before it was gone.

    1. It's been fairly mild wouldn't you say? Daylight Savings is now kicked in...days sure seem short but not too bad for cold yet at least huh?

    1. Snow isn't long lasting here just yet but the leaves are nearly gone now...season's march on but without the pumpkins which rotted quickly this year.
