Thursday Thirteen 357: Frosted Wonderland

Last Monday, November 24, we set a new record for snow on that date, with just over five inches. As the temperature then dipped below freezing overnight, it made for a pretty fairytale landscape. I was only able to get a few pics at work on Tuesday, so was glad that the temp and cloudy skies kept the landscape intact another day, giving me a chance to take photos of the frosted oaks and pines at a nearby park. I took a circuitous route home along a path where thistle and Queen Anne's Lace were also wearing frilly white coats. As always, click on any photo for a larger view.
































For more of my "frosted" photos, see my posts for yesterday and tomorrow.

I've got you beat. As I sit at my desk, when I exhale my glasses fog. Then the whole world is frosted.

The flower and pine cone covered ones are so cool (pun intended). I especially love the last two shot.

Kelley: Seems to be the case for at least half the country right now.

Alice: Ha-ha... We've had that problem here, too. :-P~

Thanks, Anita!

Jennifer: Thank you, the frosted trees made the walk to the Little Free Library and bank worth the cold and effort, LOL.

Thanks, Colleen - The thistles and Queen Anne's Lace looked lovely dressed in white lace.

Sandy: Thank you! ☺

These are beautiful views, Heather! Very different than it all looks now with the milder weather. Great shots!

Forgetfulone said...

Oh, my! Gorgeous photos! I love them! But I don't know how I could get along in that kind of weather. I guess you get used to it. But it sure is pretty!

Okay - as much as I wish it'd stop raining here long enough to let me go for a bike ride, I'm finding myself quite jealous of your snowfall! It's gorgeous!

Jana said...

Give me my fleece blanket and a cup of coffee. Winter has finally arrived...On your blog at least. Still a little tropical here, dangit.

Such pretty pictures!

Heather said...

Beth: Thank you! I believe these are from the day you decided not to go back out with your camera. I'm glad one of us was able to capture some of the frosted landscape!

Forgetfulone: Thank you. You do get used to it, more or less. Actually, you get used to spending a lot more time indoors, LOL. Nothing like curling up on the sofa with a warm blanket and a book while the snow falls! ☺

Heather said...

Thanks, Kimberly! I'd musch rather have snow than rain or srizzle when it's cold out. Alas, the landscape looks nothing like this now. Most of that snow has already melted, though we could see a "winter mix" Monday night. Yuck!

Jana: ROFL... Yes, winter has arrived here if nowhere else. I'm grateful we haven't seen several feet of snow yet, even if snow days are made for curling up with a book and a blanket. ☺
