still surviving on the street

My reader(s) who live in cold climates would probably not be as enchanted as I was by this angular ice that I found the other morning in a gutter. But on the other hand, that same reader might be amazed at tomorrow’s post.

Icy Berm

The east side of the landscaping berm is covered with bulbs that have emerged from their winter below ground. And, on Tuesday, the plants, the berm, and the rest of the yard were covered with ice.

Maybe I’ve mentioned it previously, but I really just don’t like cold weather. I get worse about it every year, too; right now I don’t even like going to the north side of town because I fear it’ll be colder up there.  But that layer of ice on the plants was lovely and, thinking of my loyal reader(s) as always, I braved the bitter temperatures* to get this shot.

*Yes. Bitter, bitter temperatures. (31 degrees, if you have to know.)
