Frosty violets

(OK, so I'm still mining the weekend's photos.) But how can I not use this one? The precise, delicate frost on a tangle of violets. The leaf caught amongst them.

It can be so much easier to see the places you don't live every day - it freshens your eyes. In the everyday round of work and home, the everyday routines of this day, week, year, it's more of a challenge to find something new. And yet... I am pleased with what I've learned and am learning to see.

It's still a pleasure to go away and have beautiful things like this to photograph.

What a beautiful photo - can almost sense the 'crunchiness' of the frost on the leaves. Such gorgeous colours, too.

Wow, it's been a VERY long time since I saw frost or smelled violets!
Noticed The Lovely Bones in your book list. A friend recommended it recently - I'm looking forward to reading it soon.
