Freeze and fog

After our cold, clear weekend last week, this time we had a foggy, cold weekend. This evergreen in the mist is to me a very Western Washington visual.

From the back deck down to the creek, the view becomes misty.

But it was still cold. The water in this bucket was frozen.

And the pond was frozen, with leaves suspended in the ice.

St. Francis and the saxifrage were doing okay.

The deep freeze put the kibosh on the calla lily.

That pretty much happens every year. Every spring I buy a new calla lily.

And so the deck waits for spring. It's too cold to sit outside yet.
