Warm Rains Are Expected!

Warm rains are expected this week ...
Lots of rain.
With wind.

The freezing fog of the past month is history now ...
In a way I will miss the beauty I found on those days ...

I wonder what the world will look like tomorrow!!!

Nature's Unexpected Heart

I found this heart in the woods ...
It was chewed by a forest creature ...
Can you guess what the critter ate?

If you guessed "a mushroom" - you're right!

The Up Side to Freezing Fog!!!

The frost coated everything ... like these late winter flowers ...

Brown and yellow autumn leaves, fallen from the trees a short time ago, were coated with crystals!

Sun shone through a leaf, highlighting the unusual ice formations.

The world became a different place, cold and beautiful.

Then the sun came out!

December Flowers ...

There aren't many flowers left around here ...
I found these "weeds" last week, before the killing frosts.

They are gone now, but they will be back ...
Next year!

Frosty Flower

We have been socked in with freezing fog for days.
It's cold.
It's dark.
But there are moments of beauty!

Pitch and Critters ...

I was trying to capture the day's reflections in a drop of pitch ...
When I saw this little bug.
Walking along - without getting stuck!

This spider wasn't so lucky!!!

Raindrops on Fence

Raindrops became partially frozen on the metal fence ...

Each drop was an upside-down world of it's own ...

Caught for a moment in an icy prison.

Until set free by the rising sun.

Winter Mushrooms

They have appeared in the woods and lawns ...

Mushrooms of all shapes and sizes!
They will show up until the first hard freeze ...

Sharing their heart!
