Beauty Before the Beast


Saturday night a fog rolled in. Temperatures dropped to somewhere around 10F, and the moisture in the air froze to anything it touched. This made Sunday morning amazingly beautiful. We woke up to a frosted winter wonderland that made me smile. And I went outside in my pjs to take photos as soon as I got downstairs. Above is a close-up of leaves on one of my rosebushes that I haven't trimmed back yet. (Don't judge me - I'm not a gardener!) I've got a couple more photos from this frosty world that I hope to post over the next couple of days. Enjoy them, because I probably won't be able to take more for a while. A warm wind came in last night and melted everything...making the WWV a giant puddle of slush. And yes, it's gross. So for now...enjoy the photos!

I like the photo; only two colors yet very poignant. And don't worry about trimming the rose bushes. I still have dead petunias in a flower box!

I love this shot so much!

Your roses are find. Most don't need a trim until spring. In Idaho, when the forsythia blooms, it's time to trim.

Nippy here too. I have also taken some frosted/iced leaves and branches shots. This is a good one!
