Re: previous post, Frost Crystals. Thanks to Arija
for referring to my white horse as a unicorn. I've always wanted one of those! Thanks to EGTourguide
for providing a scientific definition of hoarfrost, "Ice crystals formed in super-saturated air."
Several folks offered suggestions for renaming my subject matter. Tess
gave me "sparkle magic." Rob
calls it "winter magic." But my favorite came from Gaelyn
. I hereby wave my Good Witch of the West wand and change the name of hoarfrost to "fairy frost."
You know its cold country when frost go by specific names. We put a cup of water out tonight to see if it freezes. (We're in Naples, FL)ReplyDelete
Woah, fairy frost is a good one all right. That is some SERIOUS fairy frost you get out there! Here is it just thin coating, there it is almost an inch thick! Pretty though. That picture with Boss looks gloomy! Good thing spring is on the way.ReplyDelete
Great photos to this post and to My world post. Snow and horses: my favorite.ReplyDelete
The frost crystals on the grass look so beautiful; a wonder of nature to admire for a short time. I love the horse in its eerie surroundings waiting for the spring sunshine.ReplyDelete
Chilly scenes for sure but so pretty!ReplyDelete
