Iced - Frozen Rhododendron

Chilled, ice encrusted… Normally, I don’t post these types of images, but today in the still freezing temps with snow/ice still clinging to everything, I wanted to share a shot from my front yard yesterday. Before this storm, our temperatures were so mild the last couple weeks, that the flower buds on one of my Rhododendrons were beginning to bloom. Here is a pink bud encased in natural ‘crystal.’

Rain will be coming into western Washington later today, but it will take a couple days to wash all of this away. Several hundred thousand people are without power and have been told it may take three or four days to restore their service. Thankfully, we have power and so far have lost about half a dozen very large limbs from the Douglas Fir trees in our front yard, one large limb (about 9″ in diameter) knocked the gutter off the front corner of the house, thankful it didn’t come through the roof! One large limb fell on my favorite dwarf apple tree, hope it didn’t break. My husband is out cutting those up and moving the debris.

I’m blogging and knitting some hand-warmers with #2 needles, they may be finished before next winter!
