Ice Crystals


this tiny frosty leaf caught my eye
it wasn't until I got it on the computer that I saw the frost in shapes like flowers!
I had never seen this before


I love the endless wonders of our world!


when the sun appears
tiny spheres of snow melt become gems 
adorning the golden Western larch needles


it's been 
a lot
like this lately


wishing you a lovely week

Snow Stars


yesterday
scattered here and there


snow stars


treasures
from the sky


they barely stood out against the icy snow


another of winter's treasures

Tiny House

Who lives down this tiny hole? 
See the ice crystals? 
They are a sign of breath, something warmer than the air. 
Tiny little tracks from the critter coming and going also there. 
~

when the snow begins to melt, a stepping stone path is darker than the grass in between, so it melts first:
 
 ~

a bit like a ginger bread house
with icing sliding off:



I love it when the snow crashes off the roof
always wishing there were children there to hoot in glee with me


There are so many enchanting wonders in winter.

Snow snow snow


snow falling
little chickadee
all fluffed up


 snow falling
forest cloaked in white
in the tip top of a tree a hawk sits
viewing the world from high
 
(a Rough legged hawk)

 (chickadee was at home, hawk down the road, so little bird is safe)


it has been a snowy week
which often happens this time of year
but more snow than usual

I plowed for the first time this season
that seems early


it is so pretty


Any thoughts on how this circle 
on my frozen pond came to be?
I have never seen that happen before.
Maybe wind swirling around the tiny island?

Frozen


autumn leaves
under ice
seasons shift

~


pond mandalas


water
endless expression
fluid
frozen
artistic
~


snow stars began
our snowy storm
ethereal spirit
 

~
I woke to the low of 30F/-1C
Temps are dropping
not the usually rising during the day
28F at the moment

and so it goes
seasons changing
