FR-FR-FROZEN WATER


Look closely the next time you see some frost on a window,
the world is more than your think.


I've been racing around my backyard
teasing the guys
and
I finally have the time to stop 
and check out what is around me.


In the garden shed window leaning against the frosted glass,
a brass water-catcher that chimes in the wind.
Not today though.


Now what's over here?


An icicle super frozen in time,
something for me to lick.
Afterall, my middle name is LICKER!


 The delicate lacework of Jack Frost
really can be intricate and super amazing.
Don't breath on it though!


With another storm coming today
I think I better remind the guys
to put the ladder away.
Ol' Man Winter has come to visit us early this year.
Fine with me,
but I know the peeps are having a tricky time with it.

  2. How did Jack Frost get by you to paint those windows, Sophie? Aren't you the house guard dog?

    1. Guard dogs need extra help ~~ so maybe you could hitch a ride on an airplane and help me, NO!?

    1. Cold for sure, but if you stand behind the shed it blocks the wind.

      I like it there!

    1. Hi Jean ~~ we are deep into winter now and we have 3 more months to go.

      Suggestion ~~ if you win the GoPro contest, I might say "not" to visit this time of year ~~~ AUGUST is the best!

  13. The frost is really beautiful - don't leave your tongue behind on it when you lick it though! Its not cold enough here in the UK for me at the moment. It just doesn't feel like winter enough. Bring on the snow and frost. Could you send me a bit please. xxx

    1. We are nice and warm avoiding a rain/ice pellet event ~~ just so lucky to live on the southern side of this huge front that came in last night. The north side is super ice not a pretty picture.
      I discovered these crystals on the garden shed windows when Sophie coerced me into taking her outside ~~~ Thank YOU SOPHIE!!!
      So many gifts to find if you just open your eyes!
