The silver-lining to snow having frozen to any foliage it had fallen onto, is watching it slowly melt. Drip by drip, drop by drop, it’s as if it was never there.
And given we were at the bottom of the driveway, unable to drive up due to the amount of ice covering it, there was plenty of time to watch the melting, lol.
I stumbled upon this photo the other day that I took for the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge of Inspiration a few weeks back. Looking at it again I wondered how it would look as a black and white.
Don’t know about you but I actually think it looks better in black and white as it really makes the raindrops pop and shine. To see the colour version click here.
When it comes to icicles, any icicles, I have to admit I’m a sucker for them.
So when the snow began melting off rooftops, I was in absolute heaven looking at the many and varied icicles that were forming here, there, and everywhere!
Some were longer than my legs (not that THAT is any great challenge) whilst others were all twisted and tangled little things. It’s interesting to note that after our snowstorm, many of the icicles tasted like smoke.
It got to the point the children were actually a tad wary of taking an icicle because of this, asking about the return of the natural flavoured icicles and… “mum, how much longer?”
