I'm sick of winter, BUT...

If you've never lived with winter, you've never had the privilege of seeing hoarfrost like we had this morning, and that would be a shame.

It is gorgeous... we get it here, too. But thank goodness we're into spring now. really nice here today, I worked in the yard and cleaned up winters leaves and dead stuff.

We were supposed to leave on spring break trip... but thats another story.

It's magical isn't it? I feel like I am walking in Narnia on a morning like that.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful pics and bringing back those memories today.

Yesterday morning I dropped Taylor off at a birthday party and then I actually just drove through the park by our house listening to music and admiring all the hoarfrost..it was so beautiful yesterday morning, how could you not!

Ugh. You must have gotten up early... and on a Saturday, too! (By the time I finally got our butts out the door yesterday, it had all melted away...)

It IS very pretty, but honestly, I cannot remember a time when I have looked so much forward to spring. I want to see LEAVES on those branches, damn it!!

Always heard the term "hoarfrost", but never could get a handle on what it looked like. Thanks for the gorgeous pics.

Would you believe I grew up in in the Great White North (a snowbelt even) and that is the first time I have ever heard that word?
Beautiful Pics Heather!

There is nothing like driving in to town on one of these days, with the bright sun shining, the hoarfrost lighting up the entire countryside with it's reflection.
Beautiful pictures.
Another amazingly elegant feat of Mother nature.
