Hoarfrost Fences

I woke this morning to a beautiful winter wonderland.  The whole world was still and covered in giant frost crystals.

The magnolia tree was covered.

So was the crabapple tree.

The evergreen bushes were also looking beautiful in their white covering.

Even the bird feeders and the shepard’s hook had little crystals spiking from them.


My favorite, however, is what it does to the fences.

      I love when we get this thick foggy frosty weather! Of course, it would have been better if I had gotten to stay home and take more pictures. ;-)

    I really love the chicken wire all frosted up, too cool!! :)
    We don’t get that kind of frost here, I guess there isn’t enough moisture.

      Warm and cold. It’s frozen fog. I love when this happens because it means there is no wind and it’s perfect silent white beauty.

    Such magnificent photographs of Jack Frost. I can’t even imagine how you can capture the magic of snow so perfectly. I think you might carry a bit of magic dust behind your lens. Beautiful.

      Thank you. I really was rushed to try and take pictures before I left this morning. There wasn’t a lot of thought in these pictures.

    I love hoar frost — we’ve had quite a bit of it this winter, but nothing like what you have in your photos, Teresa! Gorgeous!

    If you don’t mind — I’m going to post a link to your giveaway in my sidebar. It’s the least I can do after you were such a good sport about my book post this week. Lol.

    awesome shots. i’m trying to figure out what soaps to try – so many choices. any suggestions for you – since you make them all?? ( :


    • Teresa
      Mar 08, 2013 @ 09:31:22

      Thanks, Beth. Soaps really are very personal. If you like fragrances, there’s lilac or Beach Breezes that are quite popular. If you want gentle and good for the skin, I’d recommend Oatmeal Honey, Calendula Honey or Calendula. The Cornmeal Lemongrass is good for exfoliating and grime.
