Moss aloft and frost

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Finding moss and lichen in trees is winter treasure, if there were such a thing. It's both fascinating and disconcerting. How do they grow there?!

Frosted ground and the penetrating cold.

Frosty lords and ladies poking up from the ground. I've seen lots more this year than previously; I'm expecting to see plenty of those strange flowers over the next few months.

Frosty old seed heads and slick winter barks.

Catkins, frozen ponds and birds sticking together.

Take care,
