Around the Yard

I seem to be in a bit of a slump with photography or is it just that there is not too much to take pictures of.
After a recent snowfall,I did go outside to look for photos and found some. All of these are taken either from inside my house or on my yard.

We look for frosted cones to decorate our Christmas trees.I had one that was decorated by God Himself. 


If you have followed this blog for any length of time,you know about my obsession of taking pictures of my frost covered windows.Here is another unique design.


With the setting sun in the corner of this shot the frost flowers take on a new look.


A few remaining clusters of berries on the Mountain Ash,look extra special with a cap of snow.


One of the evergreen trees has this interesting bark.It peels away and creates all kinds of designs.


Today's thought includes each of you.
Thank you God for all your blessings on me and my family.
For the strength You give me each day and for 
all the people around me who make life more meaningful.

  3. Your frost pictures are absolutely gorgeous!! They always are. And I love the peeling bark. There is much to see and share in each season. But I think not as MUCH in the winter! Last week, I actually left the house several times with NO camera!! And that is unheard of for me, I even take it to the grocery store. I guess dark and bleak are not my style.
