hoarfrost

 hoarfrost iced every little twig at dawn
 blades of grass
 spruce needles
 black eyed susans
all was frosted
five degrees
an inch of snow
winter has us in her cold
cold 
grip

V-just to look is to shiver. My advice would be to stay by a wood fire. Go well. B

barry i need to bring in more wood, however it's warmer now...
lota, thanks!, me, too.
jean, bananas??? well, i guess so...

bananas - well not really - just a phrase Victorians use to describe their winter in comparison to the other 99.9% of the country, those who want to brag about playing golf all year - but we do get buckets of rain and many grey days. our summers are not as hot as much of the country.
