Red Dirt Farm

Ramblings and Photos from a Country Life

A few weeks back I planted some cool weather crops in a few pots.

 Never did I think it was going to get so cold, so quickly.

Sad droopy spinach and lettuce.

Now, I want to be perfectly clear – I said I would not complain this winter about the cold weather.

So this isn’t a complaint, I’m just saying it sucks.

Excuse me, it really breaks my heart that my crops probably won’t produce.

So how about a few beautiful shinning photos of frost.

Frosty drops

yes, I was crawling around on the ground in my fuzzy bathrobe and slippers taking these photos.  It was all I could do to get up off the ground.

So I moved on to my car where the ice crystals looked like feather magic.

These are on the side of my car – which is black although it looks blue here.

I think this one looks like shooting stars in the sky.

I know, I got a little carried away, but how could I not, with such magic?

See you later, Bye!

    1. Thank you 🙂 I had a blast creeping around early this morning in my PJ’s and fuzzy robe capturing the magic. Brrrrr

  1. Wow! They look stunning! There’s something a little bit magical about frost, even if it isn’t so great for the plants.

    beautiful photos…love the frosty ones that look almost feathery. I don’t think that at this point I could even try to not complain about winter, so I admire your efforts 😉

  5. I never knew frost was so pretty. Thanks for taking those photos and sharing them with us. Next time, pay attention to the weather report and cover your baby seedlings with a sheet.

    1. I just wasn’t feeling well enough to go out and cover them, I knew it needed to be done, and it seemed like just one more thing I was asking of Mr. C, so I just let it be.

    Sorry about your vegies but I almost think it’s worth it for these amazing photographs, so very beautiful and other worldly….

  8. Oh, darn, the spinach frosted! Sigh. I do love how you turned the moment into magic, though.
    I have decided to stop struggling, and just embrace living here. in siberia. and immediately my heart of hearts went into a decline. Oh, no!
