This morning it was below freezing. It’s been said that Nature was the first artist.
And so she painted in frost on my deck railing!
It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. – John Burroughs
What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. – John Steinbeck
Winter is a glorious spectacle of glittering fractals complete with a soundscape and atmosphere entirely its own. – Anders Swanson

All those little frozen beads – do you think there was an early dew and then it froze?
I’m not sure exactly what you’re referring to, but it was dry and sunny, cold, got much colder overnight, then the sun came out this morning, so I suspect there was a tiny bit of warming and melting going on when I went out.
That was probably it, then.
oh wow such beautiful detail. Thanks ever so much Joan for seeing what others might not and sharing these photos.
Thanks! My pleasure. That’s what I do.
