Outdoor Wednesday.


Hi everyone.  Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday hosted by the lovely Susan @ Please visit her blog to see what other participants are showing us today. :)

We had a bit of a freeze the last couple of nights.  My roses have been frozen.  You can almost see the layer of ice on the rose.


Can you see the layer of ice on the grass?  And so it seems like we will have cold nights from now on.  IMG_4729 

I hope everyone is staying warm.  Enjoy a cup of warm tea or coffee.  Happy Wednesday!

It's chilly and damp here so the fireplace is so comforting this morning. I love "crunchy" winter grass - well, maybe just the first crunch of the winter. :)

Pretty rose - even in it's frozen state. We have not had frost yet, but I am sure it is not far off.

I adore the quote by Paul C. Bragg which appears on your sidebar and your rose with frost on it is amazing!

Hi Sandra! Oh, your rose looks so beautiful covered in the thin sheet of ice. I wish I could feel a little of that cool. It's still in the 80s here! Oh, I love your new ID photo of yourself!
Be a sweetie,

Sandra, even with the frost, the rose is still lovely. I can't believe you've had frost. I have the AC on. It's a bit warm here. I wish we would finally have a fall. It keeps tricking us... every now and then we get a nice fall day, but for the most part, it's WARM (read as HOT). ;-)

You shared some very pretty wintery pictures with us today. Thank goodness we do not get too much ice here. I do not like cold weather. So proud you stopped by my place.

Hi Sandra !
It has been snowing here in Colorado since last night - so it is coooooooold ! Love your rose picture !

Hi Sandra,
I guess it's that time of year, and we must prepare ourselves to bid farewell to such beauties as this rose, until next year. I do miss my roses in the winter, but am so happy when they bloom here in April. We have not had a killing frost yet, but it could happen any day. You certainly had a heavy frost. Thank you for sharing.

Sandra- the rose sure looks pretty even with it's layer of ice!! My DH has been trying to get out of Colorado Springs airport all day- denver is blizzard then they got him on the plane for 2 hours only to make them all get back off!! Mechanical issues. He's trying to get a flight in to Phoenix for a friends funeral tomorrow-

We got another 6 or so inches of snow today- no more fall for us!

I avoid getting up early enough to see if there is frost on the grass. So far if there has been frost it has disappeared before the children get on the bus. (I think)

Tootsie said...

that is what our grass has looked like every morning for a month now...I can't say I like it much at all!

Such a beautiful rose! I look at all the posts with frost and snow and it is so hard for me to acknowledge that it is that time of year. We are still having summer weather down here!

Thank you for sharing with us!
