Frost-free Sunday

In lieu of today’s frost, which was not spectacular, here is a photograph from February of 2009 in warm (II), cool (I), and merged (III) versions.

    1. Thank you. So happy that you like the picture. The frost patterns fascinate me, also, and I take a a series of photos every winter. Although this winter has been terribly warm until just recently.

      1. where I am, Perth in WEstern Australia, frost is something that makes the ehadlines and hasn’t for many years. I’m from Melbourne, Victoria, in the south-east of the country, and when I was a kid, frost and ice in winter were wonderful daily things 🙂

    2. I think I accidentally deleted your reply. Going to try again.

      I can see how much farther south Melbourne is than Perth. The climate must be much different there…although I have the impression that it doesn’t get so cold in Australia as it does in the Upper Midwest of the United States. (I’m in Fargo, North Dakota, which is not all that far away from the Canadian border.

      I’ve an author friend in Perth (Adrian Bedford) who seems more concerned about the heat than cold.

      Thanks so much for the note!

        1. Ah! It is a small world, isn’t it. 🙂 I would never want to live where there are not four seasons. I don’t enjoy the summers quite so much, but the other three seasons are glorious! So happy to have made contact with you!

          1. yes – I’ve lived in England, and really miss the winters, Autumns. Spring here is briefly glorious with all the wildflowers. Check out some earlier posts for those, or google west australian wildflowers. They are rightly world famous. I myself would love to live in Canafa! Or move back to England. Or Scotland. Don’t really like it here, but here is where I am and I hate the summers – espeically as they are gettng more trying. But we are moving towards Autumn – so hopefully we won’t get runs orf horrible hot days. Not that Autumn’s here yet, not by a long shot, but there is hope over the horizon…

            1. My people are mostly from the British Isles, originally, and I’ve often wished I could go there for a visit. My brother–the one who just retired–traveled there often to meet with clients, and as far as India, where he did some volunteer work with International Mission of Hope for a number of years. He took lovely vacations. ::sigh:: At least he posts lots of pictures on Facebook! Which reminds me, I did look at some of your flower pictures. I especially liked the Banksias. We used to have a lot of flowers in our yard, but the warmer winter temperatures and the more dramatic temperature changes we’re getting in the springtime have pretty much killed things off. I am going to have to get out into the vegetable garden and get it cleared out and ready to plant with veggies and flowers both. Anyway . . . we are moving on toward spring. And I will get to garden right after the tree pollen season. 🙂 We invested in a new central air system a couple years ago (the old one was 35 years old), and so it’s been easier and less expensive to keep the house cool enough, which we weren’t really able to do before. Hope you have a nice evening!

              1. thank you. It will be prodictive at least. And I will take sunset photos tonight. Maybe another blog post on those 🙂 Good luck with Spring. And yes, climate change is affecting everything – here Autumn is diminshed and spring starts when it should – once was – the middle of winter. It’s trerible to know the effect on all the birds and such, let alone on our psyches.
