Frost Crystals

I woke this morning to a coating of hoar frost. (This deserves a more poetic name, don't you think?)
Crystalline magic encases my world and takes my breath away.

The temperature hovers at zero, but winter's surprising wonderland makes me forget chilled fingers and toes.

  6. I'm glad we are up above the inversion--I went for a walk in the sunshine at 30 degrees today. But I do love the hoar frost, just wonder who came up with that name.

    I must be in a creative blur, I was thinking it was SkyWatch Friday not my world Tuesday!

  9. So beautiful all that icing on the trees and things, we don't see that around here not even in the winter. Certainly not now while it is the height of Summer.
    Very pretty.

  37. Never seen a frosted tree before, they look magical. You have a lovely horse!

  38. I have always thought that about hoar frost too. So beautiful and I bet it was really quiet when you were taking these pictures too. Your beautiful horse looks as though he doesn't mind the winter in his thick winter coat.
