I've seen some folks admitting on their blogs that they are getting sick of snow and snow pictures. Well, those folks won't want to scroll down THIS post.
I don't feel that way. I love EVERY season - - - and I especially love a winter that is cold and snow filled. We've been having my FAVORITE kind of winter this year.
The alternative to a snowy winter, at least the way I see it, is a cold rainy, drizzly, muddy, and gray winter. Those give me really bad hair days. I'll take snow over that ANY DAY OF THE WINTER!!!
This past week, we had two or three days of fog. That strange phenomenon of fog on a day whose temperature is below freezing.
This was my view early Saturday morning. Can you see through the fog? Can you see what is ALREADY happening to the fog shrouded trees?
Well, I found myself hopping up, hurrying to the patio doors, and shooting picture after picture as the FROSTING continued to occur.
It is fascinating.
It is sparkly.
It is beautiful!!!
Thank God for the JOY of winter.
As the fog thinned, the "frosting" became more visible.
Suddenly the sun broke through. Oh my - - - gotta HURRY now to get some pictures before the diamonds all melt away in the warmth of the sun!!!
Just look at those white feathers at the end of black arms against a blue sky.
How could anyone get tired of this? How could anyone be depressed by this?
Classic white on black with a splash of red. Do you suppose this is where fashion designers got the idea for this particular color scheme?
Delicate icy fingers just dripping with many faceted diamonds.
And all this, emerging out of a winter fog. Simply amazing.
They call it hoar frost, but I call it beautiful.
And another winter wonder - - - shallow sastrugi in my back yard.
I'm reminded of what the Apostle Paul said: "I have learned whatever STATE I am in, therewith to be content." I think he even meant Indiana - - - and I just want you to know, I AM content!!!
Have a great day.
