This past weekend, Portland experienced some unseasonably cold weather. An inversion came into town, and left the valley shivering in below-freezing temps. With it came a frost that left everything outside with a coating of white.
|Rhodie bud gets some flocking|
Nature's white flocking made our front yard look so pretty, I threw my jacket over my PJs and ran outside with my camera to capture it.
Each individual blade of grass sported a thick frosty coating. The dead leaves lying on the ground had their veins traced in an outline of white.
|Still a few leaves left on our pear tree|
Even the few leaves still left on our tree had an icy edging.
|Rose bush leaves with an icy coating|
The rose bushes were especially pretty. The frost made lovely patterns on their serrated leaves.

And the few withered-up roses that were left got a nice sparkly coating.
I had good fun roaming around the yard with my camera. Although the weather outside is cold, it does bring along beauty. Hope you enjoy the photos!
