Crystal Twinkles

Sunday, we awoke to a frosty morning; every outdoor surface covered in tiny ice crystals.
Upon opening the door, all was hushed outside; the birds quietly perched in maples and pines.
The morning sun cast twinkling lights and delicate shadows across fresh snow.Nevermind the sawcut in that tree trunk. That's some of Speedy's work for a mountain bike trail. Nevermind that the nearest mountain is five hundred miles away.

As beautiful as your pictures are, they make me glad that I was complaining about our temperatures in the low 40s.

I do love your photographs!

I'm jealous. Haven't seen low 40's ANYTHING in some time.

Thanks Richard!

Your pictures are lovely.

I love how children do something fairly disastrous and then move on...and we sort of accept it! I have several beautiful lengths of fabric with something cut out of the middle -- something doll-dress sized...

Or a place in the lawn where they were determined to make a fire-pit...once...

Actually, husbands are that way too, but not, of course, wives or mothers :)

Thanks for the compliment.

That was me with my mother's stash...positively destroyed it! I hear you about the fire pits. There are four in our lawn. Yes, I said four. Husbands? :)
