Come Take a Walk With Me

Today was a beautiful day - we woke up to discovery we were at the center of a beautiful, gauzy globe of white, shifting fog.  The world seemed to consist of nothing but our yard and the sparkling films of frost that had descended during the night.
After completing a few projects down by the barn a camera was fetched and I wandered about the yard to see what interesting frost decorations I could find.   Come and join me!

 I love frost - there are so many different kinds. One of my favorite is this type, the soft, furry looking white frost that just skims the edge of the bi-colored leaves.

Isn't that beautiful! Just look at all those intricate veins.  I still wonder how people can question if there really is a Creator when they are surrounded by the wonder of God's handiwork everyday!

I love this one - delicate little flowers that look like God picked them up and dipped their petals in super fine sugar. :)

You can see here some of the fog in the background.

Pretty little red buds on our silver maple.

Frost dusted chokecherries. (Don't they look good enough to lick?)

I don't know what this plant is, but I love the colors and the stark contrast of the white frost.

The pictures don't do justice to the real thing, but I hope you enjoyed the small tour of the fall foliage in our backyard.

    Psalm 19:1 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. 


  1. Those are beautiful pictures! I was enjoying it from a different perspective......indoors. :)

    The heavens truly do declare the glory of God!
