  2. The frost adds an artistic element to the blossom – it feels like a sugar coating that sweetens the view. Nicely captured and how about no frost in the desert? It makes the place feel cold…

  3. Wonderful photo-a sprinkling of frost to prove winter is coming. The haiku captures the essence of the picture perfectly. A roaring fire, good company, and “lots of hot chocolate” will warm your heart this winter. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie 🙂
