I have always been fascinated by photos of frost and its delicate beauty.  
I say "photos of frost" because I have rarely seen it myself ~ until this year.  
We seem to be having an extremely cold winter for mid Ohio and as the temp drops below zero, the windows in the chicken coop are exquisitely painted with it.

Most of the frost is accumulating on the French door of the green house 
and looks beautiful from both inside and out.

I suppose the frost has something to do with moisture from the chickens 
who are struggling to stay warm in these subzero temps.

"This is the scenery that feeds the soul and 
gives life to the senses."

This beautiful display is on a window with only a single pane of glass left and is a view
 from the greenhouse looking out towards the chicken run. 
 It truly does look like a fern ~ nature's beauty in its purest form.

"Stop and take a photograph."

Gosh it is just stunning Cindy! And yes!!! It looks like the most amazing fern I have ever seen!!! When I was a child I remember sitting in class and staring at the frost in the windows of our old school. It fascinated me then and I really appreciate your post because it has reminded me to slow down and look again...such beauty! And yes...It will be negative 11 on Monday with wind chills of negative 55...I think they are shutting down the schools as well! You stay warm friend...the winds are howling here...Nicole xoxo

Hi Cindy,

Thank you for sharing. I'm reminded of my childhood in upstate NY.
Happy New Year!

Gorgeous, Cindy! We had a lot of fern frost around here too... I just did not get out my camera to capture it. Thanks so much for your very nice comment today. Blogger's just "get" what others admire and like. So nice to have people in my life that "get it"! xo

When I was a child I was fascinated by the frost that would be on most of the windows of our old house. My sister and I would make out little pictures in the pattern. It was a race to see who could get to the windows first thing in the mornings to see what Jack Frost had painted what we thought was just for us.
Your lovely photos have conjured up some precious memories for me today Cindy. Thank you.
