Phenomenon


                                                      I awoke this morning to that special phenomenon -  hoarfrost.

It is when fog meets froth.  













  Every branch...
















         limb...
















and twig were coated with glimmering ice crystals.















Unharvested corn wore a frosty coat...














while a gossamer spider's threads were woven like a crocheted doily.














It may have been cold and gray but we enjoyed seeing this special phenomenon of beauty.

Hope you did too.    Have a wonderful week.    

God Bless!

Debbie

  10. Now that is impressive! This is when one really appreciates the "weeds" in the meadow, they get to "Dress up" every once in awhile.

  11. I love fog and this is just the icing on the cake!! Pun intended? Maybe :) Thanks for sharing these gorgeous photos. My fave is the spider's web all lacy and white and as delicate as fine spun candy floss. Have a wonderful week to come.

  13. Wow! Very beautiful. I don't know that I have seen this exactly before. We get ice crystals on the grass but I haven't seen everything decorated with it. Glad that you braved the cold to take those photos. Thank you!

  16. Hi Debbie, I agree....this is sooo beautiful! God gives us so much to see!! When we see something different or unusual in the sky/weather, it's like God is speaking to us from the heavens with his painting for the day~~~Sorry, I haven't been blogging/responding much these last months...but I do read. So much going on, I have needed a break and have pulled back. Hope you are doing well......Blessings for a Merry Christmas!! Roxie
