I thought that the photos of the Hoar Frost I took and quickly posted on Monday the 4th, would be it for the season.  Surprise surprise!  Today the Hoar Frost returned more beautiful than ever.  The gardens are super today.

Enjoy this “Quickie” all taken today.



And trust me on this - there are dozens and dozens more from today!!!

Want a "Quickie" ? Today

 Want a “Quickie” ? Today


Went out to the gardens mid-morning to check out the hoar frost.  It makes everything look like a fairy land – beautiful.


(def.  Hoar Frost is a thin layer of ice on a solid surface, which forms from water vapor in an above-freezing atmosphere coming in contact with a solid surface whose temperature is below freezing, and resulting in a phase change from water vapor to ice as the water vapor reaches the freezing point.)

Beach Driftwood

 I am always fascinated by the many forms of driftwood on StoneWater Beach at Gardens at Waters East.  The powers of water, sand and wind forms the wood into sculptures – natural beauty.

There are a number of driftwood pieces mounted on pedestals in the home here.  Giving them the dignity of sculptured art.

So much beauty in a "piece of wood"

Joy & Signs of Hope

 I am calling this series – Joy & Signs of Hope.


There are not many uplifting things in the news these days, so I decided to do a little more posting on the blog.  Seeing things of beauty can bring a little joy to all of us at this time.  So, in addition to the many regular postings here, over the next months I will do my part to brighten up your day with many recent photos taken of the beauty that lives here all year, Spring through Winter in the Gardens at Waters East.

I am calling these special postings – Joy & Signs of Hope.


Hope this helps!
