Here is our Tea Olive, Osmanthus fragrans, covered in ice.
It seemed as if we were 'Frozen in Time'.
I took advantage of the snow cover and ice to venture across the street into our 1/2 acre...this is our septic drainage field. It is full of wildflowers and grasses. I believe this is Goldenrod, Solidago.
At the back edge of the lot are woods. Hanging in the tree was a Praying Mantis egg sack. What fun to find this!
Hope everyone is staying warm and safe. How much longer is it until spring????.............
