Country jewels

Photobucket
There was a present waiting for me when I got up this morning. Now I know that most of you don't consider an ice storm to be a present. But this wasn't a big storm; it was small and is now melting. But for several hours this morning, the world where I live looked like a jewel. And I looked on it as a present.

It doesn't look real, does it? To me, I see diamonds so brillant you could wear on your finest coat. But don't mind me...I'm supposed to be taking a blooging break today!

Oh, this is just gorgeous, like specially-crafted delicate glass! Wow! Now, that is just the right amount of ice to have....just enough to create a few small beautiful scenes!

Ice can be so beautiful....and yet it can be so damaging too. Lovely photo. I enjoy our icy, frosty, snowy mornings....they paint the world in a different way.
