Frost crystals grow from each leaf and seed. A long hard frost, humidity in the air, cold still air close to the ground. The borders of each leaf sprout tiny towers of clear ice; a seed turns into a jewel, rivaling anything sold by Harry Winston. If diamonds are a girl's best friend, an early freeze can decorate last year's castoffs from the forest, giving them that special bling -- if only for a brief breath before sunrise.

Seen on a walk around the south end of Searsville Lake and along Leonard's Bridge, back in December 2015. Landscapes from this trip may appear some day, in "A Day at a Time": 151215.
