Jack Frost

White on the lawns, the roofs, the cars
show where Jack Frost has passed,
but how I miss those leaf-like scenes
he used to draw on window glass.

A hard frost last night reminded me how much, as a child I loved the frosty patterns that appeared on the windows overnight. Now we rarely see them due to the increase in double glazing in our homes. Those intricate patterns are now just a fading memory!

    I suppose you can still find those patterns on auto glass.
    Good thing though that Jack Frost is kept at bay in our homes 🙂

    We’re in a wet pattern for a bit. Thankfully not snow.

    Oh me too! How I loved to blow on them to melt holes, press my finger through them, or just look at them and dream of fairies and ferns.

    I used to make a spy hole and peep out.
