Winter Chill

This is what greeted me when a frigid day was followed by an even more frigid night resulting in a heavy frost the next morning. I am accustomed to finding ice on the windscreen of my car, but this was the first time the crystals formed patterns.  It was such a novelty, I took the photographs to record the event.






Katie took refuge in a warm bed.

  1. Yes, it’s been cold here, but not as bad as in your part of the woods Margaret. Beauty still there for sure though.

    • Hi Enevea. With your photographer’s eye, you have learnt to recognise the beauty which exists around you and know it can turn up unexpectedly.

  2. What beautiful images… Katie’s a smart girl staying tucked in under a blanket!! 😀

    • Hi Lori. Being small, Katie can use her nose to easily lift the bedclothes and crawl under.

  3. My goodness, you’ve had some chilly weather down south. After a long hot summer, it’s been a bit of a shock of cold again now. The patterns look beautiful. Yes, I would do what Katie did. She looks toasty warm. Very sensible of her. 🙂

    • We’ve had lots of damp, grey weather in recent weeks. Whilst it is raining, we are not having frosts so no further damage to plants which suffered earlier in autumn and winter.
      I am looking forward to reading your most recent post.

  4. Wow Margaret, how beautiful. When we take the time, we become aware of the magnificence of nature

    • Thanks Jennie. I became aware of the patterns of crystals because of the light shining through the windscreen.
      You are right about taking the time to notice the wonders around us.

  5. Hi Johanna, I am glad the frost refreshed you. Winter is a challenge for me so I do my best to keep warm and keep active whilst waiting for re-energising spring to arrive.
    The winter blooming wild flowers in the local bushland are compensation for the grey and dreariness of this time of the year.

  6. I look at it…whilst I am melting from heat here ;o) Nice and refreshing!

  7. Wonderful patterns, Katie sounds very sensible.

    • Hi Susan, It was such a surprise seeing the light shining through the windscreen highlighting the patterns.

      Katie doesn’t like icy cold.
