Here in Austin, we were on the southern tip of the ice storm that has encased half the country in the frozen precipitation. I awoke to temps in upper 20's and a little bit of ice in the yard. Not too much - just enough to make things sparkly in the bright morning light. Oh - and cause the schools to start 2 hours late, so the kid has proclaimed today "The best day EVER!".
The poppies are squashed down in a thin layer of ice:
The fence is quite shiny:
A thin layer of ice coats the trees:
Tiny icicles hang from the eaves:
The birdhouse (which I filled with seed right after I took this photo):
And now it is all melting away as the sun warms the garden.....
