Walk with me

“Frost is the greatest artist in our clime - He paints in nature and describes in rime”

~ Thomas Hood


Leaving for our morning walk, we notice intricate frost patterns on the pick up



and our entrance gate.


We don't have much moisture in the High Desert...this was a visual treat...

gone by the time we headed home.

What a beautiful pattern the frost left..You are lucky, the ground looks good for walking..We had some snow and it made us stop for now..I get nervous with any ice on the road..

And this Arctic blast would be coming my way, thank you very much...nothing a nice hot bowl of organic oatmeal laced with gogi berries won't cure...so far, it's just rain...but we won't delude ourselves...we know it cometh. Love the shot of Trux, come on Ma...

Hey Harriet said...

What sweet walks. Thanks for sharing your neighbourhood. I like the idea of a neighbourhood with so few neighbours!

Sandy J said...

the frost pattern makes me think of the poetic movement of a paintbrush moving in tune to a song mother nature can only hear. very lovely....and on a truck. not only awesome, but awesome that you noticed and cared to preserve the memory.

I love the sight of frost although just seeing this pic of the frost on your car, already gives me goosebumps, thinking of the cold.
