Fleeting Frosts of February

Hi folks and followers! We are back in the big city, about to leave for Guatemala very early tomorrow morning... so of course as a last minute task I thought I'd post a few pix! 

February 2013 was really spectacular, scenery-wise. The number of mornings with gorgeous frost surpassed any year I can remember. 
The Mountain looked extra mysterious all dressed up in silvery stuff...
 We had lots of fluffy white stuff...
 The sauna seemed extra snug under that big blanket of snow...
 ...and several mornings were just spectacular.... 
 Not to mention the clear bright afternoons, once the frost had vanished... 
 These red twigs are new growth of serviceberry bushes... hopefully I'll catch their ethereal white blooms later this spring...
 I think aspens look magnificent against that brilliant blue, don't you agree?
 Tramping about in the deep snow, I caught some shots of the house from a few different angles... from below the perennial rock garden...
 ...and from behind the clump of cedars we call The Twisted Sisters...

... and those sisters are all bundled up in moss and lichens...
 I can't get too far with a camera without the obligatory shot of Superior from afar...

Val had some light reading... the operations' manual for the "charge controller" for our photoelectric-battery system... our device did a bit of a dance on us last month... Val fixed it with a bold maneuver but we still don't know exactly what happened... Let us know if you find out, darlin'...
 Back to the frost... another morning dawned with fog and filmy white...

 The early morning pinks and golds were just awesome on top of the white etching...

 Mmmm... perfect....
 Ahhh! Have you ever seen anything quite so lovely? 

I didn't think so! 
We'll be back in a few weeks... just in time for Mud Season!
