The mixture of gentle rain and then freezing temperatures has enclosed shrubs, reeds, grasses, branches and buds in thick clear ice, resulting in breath-taking intricate displays of Mother Nature's beauty. They remind one of paper weights with dried pressed flowers inside, though these are a million times more beautiful and precious, for they have been formed purely by nature. I am in awe!
Below there is a little treat for all of you: a short video clip of Kiki, being her sweet enthusiastic self in the snow this morning. Hope some of her joy rubs off on you!
Love to you all,
