Icy Morning

The Pacific Northwest wasn't immune to last week's arctic blast.  A week ago Thursday, I awoke to an ice-covered front yard.




Although still home recovering from foot surgery, I couldn't resist grabbing my camera and hobbling outside.




Still-warm ground quickly melted it's icy crust.  But on vegetation, the frozen droplets clung quite nicely.




My rhodie bushes sported tiny, thin icicles. 




The few roses left were encased in a glittering, frosty shell.




After sitting idle for two weeks, it felt great to get out and capture some images.  Sniff....I miss hiking already.  Can't wait until my foot is healed and I can get back on the trail.
