Frosted freedom

For nearly three weeks,

My world has been wrapped

In shades of silver and grey.

Frosted freedom copy

I can never get enough of

One of my favourite winter scenes —

Silver-haired trees

And hoar frost on birdhouse and bridge.

Frosted view copy

The scene has both thrills and beauty

When a sudden snow shower

Sprinkles Oscar, my dog, with diamonds of snow.
