Already Frozen


I was scoping out photo backdrops for finished knitting projects on a recent Saturday morning and came across this ice coated red bud tree.  Normally, irresponsible lawn irrigation tends to get under my skin, but glimpsing the morning light through ice crystals and fall color on one of the first really cold days of the year just softened my heart a little bit and I had to get a closer look.  I still think people should pay more attention to their irrigation scheduling as it relates to the weather forecast, but I'm glad I got to witness something magically beautiful.
