A Frosty Morning
We had dense fog overnight. The results were beautiful frosty decorations on everything in the backyard. The winds were calm and the sun never came out completely, so none of the frosty crystals were disturbed. Here are some of the sights I captured in the backyard this morning.
The frost was really heavy on some branches.
Frosty pine needles
Staghorn Sumac seed heads The frosty Weeping Willow reminded me of the "Tree of Souls" from "Avatar."
Purple Coneflower seedhead
Highbush Cranberry holds its fruit all winter
A White Pine in the front yard
Silk Christmas flowers by the front door
The Pin Oaks are still holding most of their leaves
