Wednesday I awoke to very cold air inside and out. In the dark I hadn’t a clue as to what had happened while I slept. A bit later I braced myself for the cold, and properly geared up,
I stepped outside…
In twenty-five degree air
my nose stung from the cold,
my fingers went numb,
but it mattered not.
The Farmlet had become enchanted!
Have a blessed weekend!

Oak leaves frozen in Thyme – lovely!
So glad you like them, Annie!
Those pictures are so beautiful. Every time I read your posts, they make me want to go back “home”. I dearly miss the farm life. What a blessing it is for you to wake up there every morning.
Thank you, and yes, it is a blessing. Where was/is home?
It was in southeast Texas. Beautiful green, trees and water. 3 of my most favorite things.
Aw, how lovely 🙂
Thank you, Diana!
The oak leaves frozen in time is the prettiest one although all these are very nice.
Yvonne, thank you! I was surprised that so many of you liked this one best. The color is low key, but I think it is the frost on the edges of the leaves that really makes the picture.
Lovely photos – but my goodness, that 25 degrees is a bit nippy. I’ll bet you had some ice to break this morning. We do have a bit of color now, since our last cold snap. The crepe myrtles are turning orange, the cypress are a beautiful mix of green and rust, and the Bradford pears are beginning now to show their burgundy leaves.
I think hoarfrost and iced plants are just beautiful – especially if the ice isn’t so heavy as to cause problems. Enjoy the wintry beauty – I hope you have inside tasks for the weekend!
Linda, Bob told me it was 19 degrees when he got up this morning! I’m glad you are finally getting some color where you are!
Your photos are truly gorgeous, especially the oak leaf in its herbal slumber, and the light is so perfect Kincaid himself couldn’t have done better; )
You make me blush. Thank you, Deb!
Not at all, Dear Girl…
Think nothing of it…
Seriously though, just kidding, you’re welcome (and I do mean that: )
Gorgeous photos!! 🙂
Thank you, April!
Ok. I want to live on a farm now.
It is a wonderful place to be!
The rudbeckia seeds are very handsome.
Thank you, Tom, they are my favorites too.
Beautiful! I especially like the thyme/oak leaf one.
Thank you, Becca! This seems to be a favorite with many of my friends today.
Enchanted indeed. Our Mother nature has the best design taste.
She does, Joan, she certainly does! 😀
I love The Enchanted Farmlet. Such a lovely post, Lynda!
Thank you! 😀
Laurie, I am so glad I got out there and took these, because this kind of weather is so rare here. Who knows when, or if, I will ever see this again? Although… the Mountain Farmlet may have its own winter delights! We shall see what she reveals when we move.
These are beautiful photos, Lynda! Frost is so much fun to work with… but oh, it disappears so quickly as soon as the sun makes an appearance!
Thank you, Lori, and no kidding! I was so surprised at how quickly the sun could melt all the loveliness.
And it was incredibly enchanted! Worth the early hour and the freezing fingers too! 🙂
Yes, George, it was. I’m so glad my conscience nagged me to go out! 😉
Thank you for your visit, and your comments. They encourage me!
