defying gravity

if you look at this grass stem it really is a wonder that something so slender can stand upright against winter winds. but then look at the frost crystals and try to imagine what kind of anchor they could possibly be using to stand straight out, horizontally, from so inconsequential a perch. i’m so glad i went out on a beauty search this morning, because apparently beauty was out there waiting for me to show up.

    Paul Huttner said yesterday was rime ice. I can’t recall what the difference is, something something ice fog or something something water droplets.
