One of the things I miss from living in the UK is the winter hoar frosts where you wake in the morning and the whole world is white. Here in Greece we only get the occasional taste of this. These snaps were on a local hill very early in the morning.

Beautiful pictures but I am older and enjoy the sun and warmth .. I will leave the cold to you and those who enjoy it. I use to love the snow and would still welcome it ... once or twice a year but not the cold ... wet .. winds that bring it. It cuts through me like a knife.

i live in a valley less than 1/4 mile from a river. river access is a couple of miles away so don't get jealous. we often get to see the frost line on the hillsides. now that's beautiful.

That first pic reminds me when I use to make sugared violets to put on desert trays. I did that with peppermint leaves as well.

Did you eat them? Or were they just for show? (sorry, I'm just curious, but I dunno much about setting tables and plates and trays and stuff... I just kinda do what my mom tells me)

I love the cold and snow and ice and frost. I have a tradition of going outside on the first snow or ice rain of the season in a T-shirt and jeans and just taking a 10- or 20-minute walk (would be longer if my mom would let me). Just go out and praise God and sing. People look at me funny but they do that anyway :shock:

Sorry,
neglected to answer that.

Yup, you can eat them.
Not much flavor to the violets, the peppermint is yummy though

I missed this. When I was a child my mother and sisters used to make candied violets but candied mint I have never heard of. I'm putting a post-it note on my fridge to remind me to try it later in the spring.
