As I was carefully backing out of the driveway, I did a double take. The Pampas Grass beside the driveway was completely covered in ice and its fronds were so pretty I had to go back inside and get my camera.
The fronds reminded me of feathers encased in glass, and I captured these pictures from inside the car sitting in the driveway ...
Our little male cardinal greeted me when I returned home from Jackson. He was sitting on a bench underneath our Japanese Maple, as if he was waiting for me to come home and put out some fresh sunflower seeds for him, which I'm going to do when I finish this post. I captured these pictures from inside the kitchen window.
The ice will be gone tomorrow ... and so we will we. We're heading South to spend a couple of days on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and are looking forward to sunshine and temperatures in the mid-60s. Wish we could send some sunshine your way, but perhaps I'll at least have some "sunshiny" pictures to share.
