Frost Flowers

Sometimes nature is just astonishing.

Just a quick one today. Yesterday's enchanted lull being at an end, I could no longer act as if I were snowbound. I went out to my car this morning to hurry to an early meeting. There was a thick coat of frost over everything, and my windshields would need to be cleared.

But when I leaned over with my icescraper, what I saw sent me running instead for the camera.


A fleur- de-lis.

Irises and roses.

I am so glad I was lucky enough to open my eyes and see it, rather than heedlessly destroying such beauty.
