Mid February

Brown, white, icicles and snow

This winter has been a season for icicles. I'm sure they are thicker and longer than they have been in a few years. They are more like what I remember from my childhood.

Largest square: icicle on our local farm seed store. Moving clockwise: a snowy field under a blue sky; a horde of crows (this is just a tiny square of what was actually there); more icicles; crows in amongst corn stubble; and wild turkeys scratching for seeds.

I am Linking to Mosaic Monday HERE

I don't think I've every seen anything other than nearly crystal clear icicles. Did they pick up some paint while forming or maybe sediment from the roof?

Lowell said...

This is fun! I haven't seen real snow in a few years and icicles are a distant memory and you've proven it is true that turkeys are dumb 'cause they don't know enough to come in from the cold! :)

They have hugh icicles in Sharon, had to stop myself to take their picture. Have a great week and see you Tuesday.

Nevin said...

Wonderful winter photos. Icicles are beautiful but very dangerous to fall to the ground.

A lovely mosaic, the icicles are pretty. And the snowy field is beautiful. I am still hoping the weather will warm up and our icicles melt. Enjoy your week ahead!

Those icicles are looking like weapons - time for a thaw!

Sandra said...

William Kendall said...

Those icicles can be dangerous!

My goodness, you do have a winter wonderland there! I love it. We had some wonderful icicles a couple of years ago in England, but Vancouver is never (well, extremely rarely) cold enough. Are those wild turkeys? So fantastic. Sometimes I wish I lived in the east. :)

Michelle said...

Those are some huge icicles!

Don't want to stand under those icicles!

aspiritofsimplicity said...

it certainly been one of the coldest winters I ever remember. I am getting to the point I will be glad to see it go.

Mid-February looks like a dream to me. It was so mild here yesterday, 11°C I think...

A very beautiful mosaic which gives me a picture into your world right now - a great photo journal for you to look back on in years to come...
that was the year of the big snow!!

llandudnopictures said...

Brrrr, the icicles make me shiver, very chilly looking!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Weather so cold it makes the rain freeze.. I can't imagine it EG :)

podso said...

Look at those icicles. Same here, they remind me of my childhood. We liked snapping them down and playing with them. Not sure what we were playing! Have a good week!

see you there! said...

Amazing icicles. I've never lived in really cold country so have rarely seen them in person

Those icicles look dangerous. :/ Hope you warm up soon!

Judy said...

It looks like you are having the same winter as us here. Beautiful shots!

Birgitta said...

Wonderful captures!

kelley jensen said...

I've only seen a "horde" of crows once. Loved the icicle shot.

Rose said...

Looks like here...and got to say I would love to see a bigger view of the one above the turkeys...I love it.

Pondside said...

We had a cold snap here last week - it lasted for three days - and in that time we saw icicles like we hadn't seen for years. The fountain in front of the legislature turned into a big icicle!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Wonderful mosaic and oh I know those icicles, very well. I think that you are right too, longer than normal and certainly lasting longer~

Lorrie said...

Those icicles are very photogenic. They do remind me, too, of my childhood. I think that we don't get icicles so often anymore because of the eavestrough on the houses.

Rambling Woods said...

Yes it has been and we have been knocking down the ones that pose a hazard..Lovely mosaic...Michelle

Carver said...

These are all great shots. My favorite is the long icicles.

Beyond the Dog Dish said...

The icicles I find in the parks are so pretty... but the ones hanging from my roof are a tad scary at times!
