Not so much? Here, how about the crab apple tree? Still not so much??
How about now, a little closer...now you can see it....yep....hoar frost....covering everything! Hoar frost, or radiation frost only happens when the conditions are just right.
There has to be moisture in the air, and objects that are warmer than the cold moist air, and voila...hoar frost!
It was pretty enough for me to pull on some sweat pants over my pajama bottoms, throw on some boots and head out to our front yard to snap some pictures.
Our poor neighbors, I think that they've figured out by now that they are living next to one odd duck. But I don't care...not when something cool like this is out there!
I miss living out in the country where I could just go outside any old time and not worry about it if I hadn't brushed my hair or teeth....or put on actual clothes.
But today I threw caution to the wind and tromped outside just as I was....well, after pulling on sweatpants. Because the thing about hoar frost is that it doesn't last very long...it's beauty is fleeting.
