Sparkles in the Morning

Friday night about 11:00pm under the light of a 3/4 moon, a skein of geese flew low overhead.  I could hear them honking as I lay warm in my bed. The cold moon slowly gave way to a morning that dawned cold and frosty.

Do you suppose really cold grass tastes like Iceberg lettuce?
Just a thought.

We haven't had a real hard frost like this in a while.

The cold air did not stop this Song Sparrow from greeting the morning with a merry tune. 

Frost rimed the new leaves in the Blackberry vines.

It made for puffy Juncos.

Even with the cold, Spring advances ever along - see the buds?

It's still Fur Coat Weather!

The frost on the leaves is so pretty. We've not had frosty weather as such, just snow and quite a bit of it. Yesterday the wind chill with us was dreadful, it was so quiet everywhere we went as people were staying home because of the extreme cold.

Wow, you did get some cold weather. We drove into Portland to see a show, and it was cold coming home, but it didn't get as cold as at your place. Because we're in town, and surrounded by fences and houses and sidewalks, it stays a little warmer here sometimes. Your photos of the frost on the leaves are lovely.

I'll trade your frost for our snow and ice and windchill. The good news is that our temps might actually make it to 40 later this week! We've usually had a couple sunny, warm days by this time of year to tease us into believing spring is here.

Now, I'm off to ponder whether ice cold grass tastes like iceberg lettuce...
