White Wonderland

This morning we woke up to a white wonderland.....not just more snow....but hoar frost! So beautiful. We don't get hoar frost very often so I had to put a heavy coat and boots (it was still -14C) and get some pictures of it. It covers everything. Here's just a few of the shots I got from the front porch and the backyard. Double click on any photos to enlarge them.

 A close up of the branches of our birch tree.

 Rose hips.

Right and left scenes from our front porch.


 Like I said, it covers everything including metal.

 A rose branch and rose hips by our shed.

 Lawn ornaments and flower stems. They were really covered with it.
Hoar frost doesn't last long. Once the sun comes out it leaves quite quickly. I looked out side about an hour after I took these shots and it was pretty much gone. We are having a regular small snow squall now so likely more shoveling will be happening.

That's all for a very white Wednesday,



Cheers
Violet
