Beautiful Ohio Winter Day

I’m not crazy about snow, but I can handle it when it looks like this. I love it when we have one of these heavy frosts, and everything looks like it’s out of a winter wonderland movie.

Here’s the field beside our house:

And the trees down by the creek.

The pine trees were beautiful. Here’s one of them up close so you can see the delicate frost on the branches.

This last photo is of the dried hydrangea still hanging around in my garden to add some winter interest.

It’s enough to almost make me enjoy winter… almost.

An Ohio Frost

Frosty Flowers

This morning we woke up to an extra heavy Ohio frost all over everything. I love it when Mother Nature gives everything a coat of frosting. We’ve gone from below 0`F last week, to 60`F weather this week, so you just have to enjoy the beauty of Ohio weather.

The evergreens were the prettiest.

Here are a couple more shots of the garden. The first one is bittersweet vine all tangled and frosty.

The last one is the asparagus stalks I left standing from last year.

Looks like quite the tangled mess!

I had to enjoy it, sounds like a nice warm day today, then thunderstorms the next couple days. That’s the price for warm weather in Ohio in February. It is better than the below zero temps and snow from last week.
