Frost on Trees

on January 5, 2016

One of the most beautiful things in a Minnesota winter is frost on trees in the morning.  When frost is so heavy even the warm sun making its way through the cold can’t release their grip on the trees.  Frost that holds on tight when finally they loosen their grip it looks like snow falling.  Frost on trees makes me smile.  During morning chores as I thought to myself how pretty it was outside my mind began to wander what frost brings.  What winter brings.  What this winter will bring.  Frozen water lines, tractors refusing to start because of the cold,  milk prices that continue to fall,  cold hands and the layers of clothes needed to work outside.  How can something so pretty be hiding the challenges of winter.  Or is it the other way, the hardships of winter brings glitters of pretty.  Glitters of pretty to make it through the winter.  Winter brings fresh fallen snow, designs on windows left from Jack Frost, tea time in the barn to warm up from the cold and morning frost on trees.  Morning frost on trees #makemesmiletuesday
