A Frosty Friday

Well, it was late in the evening when the frosty mists crept up from the river bottom and began to cover the valley and the hills.

On Saturday the silver rime brought beauty to each leaf and flower and branch it touched.....

A troop of Quail came to dine in such an exquisite fairyland.

and a sharp shinned hawk arrived to admire the artistry - I think that was his purpose, - the little birds didn't seem too alarmed at his presence

Each of your chilly, silvery photos is wonderful! I like the garden ornaments and seed heads rimed in frost. It has snowed in Breckenridge the last several days. We may have 5' until the storm is finally over on Tues! Needless to say, we'll have a white Christmas! Merry Christmas to you and Charles, Hildred. Our son, wife, and two little ones are here with us to ski.

Winter is full of beautiful things, I am learning. You have found several of them!
Merry Christmas!

Your frosted photos are stunning Hildred. I love all of them -- kept looking to try to choose a favorite and couldn't.

Merry Christmas to you and Charles! Your posts have been a gift all year long! Thank you.
