Fog, Frost, and a Factory

Sunday, February 5, 2012. We had frost on the trees Saturday morning. Probably before that, too, what with the fog, but Saturday is when I got some photos.

Frost on evergreens. It's like a fairyland forest is in bloom. February 4, 2012.

Same place, a little over a month later. There's still more to get done. February 2, 2012.

My son-in-law and #2 daughter are doing most of the work, but I've been lending a hand where I can. One thing I'll say: my life hasn't been boring.
