When I saw the forecast for the first few hours of daylight today would be cold with a wind chill, snow flurries finishing, plus partial cloud cover, I knew I needed to be outside caught up in the middle of it up on Nose Hill instead of at the grocery store. I left home with snow coming down yet I could see a bright spot beginning to open. In a matter of about seven minutes I arrived at the parking lot, the snow had stopped, the sky showed off blues, whites and tiny bites of pink...
...and everything that could be covered was covered in a layer of the most beautiful hoar frost!
every twig, every branch, every shrub was decorated by an original Mother Nature design
not a beautiful bunch of shrubs but an amazing sight
every single leave was covered in hoar frost
in a few hours this will be a not so pretty brown plant
about two inches in length hanging from a branch
view at eye level along the path
the hoar frost covered trees stretched from one end to the other in all directions
today's eight kilometre route
Magical, snowy beauty! Such a joy to view.ReplyDelete
