Enchanted by a Frosty Morning

Gidget was taking her time when I took her outside the other morning. While I dawdled with her, I began to notice the frost. Silly, I know. Yet, ten minutes later I’d snapped numerous iPhone pictures of frosty plants.

The faded peony leaves were tinged with white.

I loved the varying textures of this Lazy Susan seedhead.

It’s the little things in life that make my day.
