On my way to work every morning , i take a back road or three to save some time. The road winds through some farm land and also along a rather large creek, a horse pasture, a sheep farm and some neighborhoods. It's a rather lovely drive.
This morning, as i rounded
one of the corners near the horse pasture and creek, i gasped in sheer
bliss. During our very cold night (of about 6F), the brush, trees
and tall grasses along the creek were covered in deep white frost -
which gave it a decidedly pure and lovely look. As the sun was
just coming up over the hill, the rays of that glorious ball of light
played off of the frost and glistened as diamonds on each branch or
blade. It was absolutely gorgeous. If i would have had some
extra time, i would have stopped and just gazed for a while. No
matter how i looked, the 'diamonds' sparkled and twinkled quite
brilliantly. Absolutely gorgeous.
A very good way to begin the work day.
