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


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

    Well that does stink about the spinach! The frost photos are beautiful though!!


  4. Some of the frosty windows remind me of feathers! Way to find the positive in the negative!

    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 😉

    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.

        I understand. Been there, done that.


  7. Sarah says:

    Wow those look quite magical.

    1. I think so too. All in the details. 🙂

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


  9. 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!
