Holiday Frosting

It is mid-December and we have only an inch of crusty, patchy snow, at most, but at least we woke up to  a gentle fog and pretty hoarfrost this morning, making me feel more in the holiday spirit.

Jitterbug's ears and tail were frosted.
Three of the four guineas that  did not go into the coop last night  because they were too freaked out by me cleaning it. They slept in the  now-bare treetops, and I was happy they all made it safely through the night; I have been hearing the great horned owls a lot lately, and they have been known to take a sleeping guinea!
A few more frosty photos from my morning walk around the farm.

 Dogwood showing its frosty teeth.

 Solveig, the Prairie Woman, looks more like a Christo sculpture now.
Cold hands.
Argiope Garden Spider, rarely seen in winter.

Love the frosty cows!

The photobucket notice is a bit intrusive

Thanks for telling me about that, gz! I don't know how it got there, but finally figured out how to get rid of it.

I thought the photo bucket thing was a problem on my computer though only when I visited your site. Glad you got rid of it.

Any snow in the forecast for you? We've had three snows so far but all have come and gone. It will not be a white Christmas here.

Sounds like we can expect significant snow Thursday and colder weather, so should have a white Christmas!!
