Frost

Frosty leaf

Frosty leaf

This morning was far from unusual.

There was ice on every bit of water there could be ice on.

And frost on every bit of vegetation on the ground.

There always seems to be some surprise, with frost.

Like this dead leaf, with all its structure brought into glittering evidence.

I’d like to make it into a brooch, or fillet it, or eat it just as it is.

It would be thin and fine and crunchy, I think – a real delicacy.

    Sharp frost here too, with a very light scattering of snow, which by noon had melted in the sunlight

      Our snow is almost gone – just tiny little pockets of it left. I noticed the ice on the pool tarpaulin stayed all day, in one solid piece. Brrrr.
