Sparkling Beauty in the Woods
It’s not often that we get either snow or ice in our part of the woods North of Houston…but this week, we are having record low temperatures. We didn’t get the promised snow, but this morning we woke up to a field of sparkling beauty!
It really was quite breathtaking!
My 16 yr.old, Christian, was up first thing taking photos while Dear Hubby and I stayed snuggly warm. But the bright sunshine and crystal beauty was too much even for him. So we bundled up and headed out before it all melted away.
Tim loves the cold and wanted to take a walk right away. And considering just how beautiful everything was in the sunlight, I could hardly blame him. So I grabbed my camera (of course) and a nice tall cup of hot coffee…and followed him.
I’ve been waiting for just such a day as this. I’ve always been fascinated with the ethereal effect that ice has on the natural beauty of the woods.
Today was no exception. The blue sky was a perfect backdrop to the frosty whiteness of the fields and trees.
I don’t think we’ve ever had our pond freeze over before. Sure hope our little goldfish are all safely sleeping at the bottom of the pond!
The deck was not safe to walk on as poor Rebekah discovered when she slipped and fell. But try telling that to my 16yr.old..he was praying he’d get to ‘skate’ on the deck today…and he did!
He got these amazing photos of the moss and the pine trees.
I do hope you enjoyed this little walk in the woods and around our little ‘farm’…from the warmth of your cozy home. Have a lovely day..and to see more gorgeous photos of the outdoors..just drop by Fishtail Cottage’s Cottage Flora Thursday Linky Party.
Sometimes it’s nice to enjoy the outdoors..from inside isn’t it?
