After our recent ice storm, I took my macro lens and tripod and wandered around my 9.5 acres, finding some wonderful frozen goodies.
Right off my front porch, I captured this image of some landscape grasses that line the walkway from the drive to the house (this is a good example of why I don’t clean out my gardens in the fall):
In my circle drive, I have an American Beautyberry bush, which the birds really enjoy. But I found a few berries the birds missed, but the ice found:
Along the drive from the road to my house, I have a couple of flowering pear trees. I noticed they had been starting to bud, also. Note this ice-encased bud. Does it remind you of anything? I see a turtle’s head!
As I wandered the acreage, I found even more wonderful icescapes. I’ll share more in subsequent posts.
