Hoar Frost

We had a lot of fog last night which froze onto all the trees giving everything a nice coating of hoar frost.  I decided to get some pictures of it because I don’t really have any nice pictures of winter yet.  There really isn’t anything to say about these pictures but I do hope you enjoy them!

Salix alba ‘Tristis’?  Salix babylonica?  Who knows!  I have yet to hear of this one refered to as the same thing two times in a row.

The Mannheimer Memorial, done by Cass Gilbert in 1906.  No one I’ve asked knows who the Mannheimer family is or why they have a memorial.

This squirrel appeared out of no where about a foot in front of me and started eating crab apples.  It was kind of terrifying.
