Brrr! The temperatures have just plummeted round this way and it is now officially windshield-scraping season (or if you’re anything like me, write-on-your-frosty-windshield season).
And so, to keep things frosty, here are a few ice-cold photos from my travels, starting with this snow-decked rose braving the cold in Inwood Hill Park, New York.
Frozen deliciousness in the shape of Umpqua Black Licorice ice cream in Leavenworth.
And more frozen food, this time just a little too over-the-top sugary for my taste, but an experience nevertheless. Frozen cheesecake on a stick at the Folklife Festival in Seattle. (I prefer my cheesecake unfrozen, on a plate, in New York.)
A snow-capped squirrel holding his nuts (haha, yes I just re-read that) in Central Park.
Drifts of ice on the still waters of Reflection Lakes in front of Mount Rainier.

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow. – Langston Hughes

Too cold for my liking! Bring on spring! 😉
Ahh but there’s a certain charm about seeing your breath in the air and hearing the grass crunch under your feet, don’t you think? 🙂
If you say so… who am I to argue? 😉
Amazing pics…, all of them!
Shivery good photos you have found this week, But I’ll have to pass this week as it is all about “summer’s coming” over here…
Ooh way to make me jealous. I need a holiday somewhere sunny! 🙂
We have a spare flat downstairs for friends and family!!! You are always welcome and it is very sunny and going to get hotter…
brrrr is an understatement –

Love that little squirrel! I’m really happy that I am in Oaxaca, Mexico until April and not in Alaska!
Ooh, how fabulous, I do like the cold now and then, but right now the sunny climes of Mexico are calling my name! 🙂

Licquorice ice cream, yum! I have tasted excellent examples in France and in Germany some years ago
I thought it was delicious, Sue, but I could have done without the unfortunate side effect of disturbing green lips, teeth and tongue for the next few hours. 🙂 Still, it wouldn’t stop me from trying it again.
Haha…I must have had green lips and teeth without realising it!
I love frost – lovely shots as well. That squirrel looks fine in the snow!

Short lived beauties!
It’s cold here in the Chicago area, too, and I accidentally have a photo today that fits the theme. Pauline suggested I link it, which I hadn’t as I’m behind in reading posts. But here I am, loving the squirrel shot and the Mt. Rainier photo. I do enjoy winter and snow, so here’s my “cold” shot:

The only thing frozen around here is my computer. Permanently. 😒

Hi Ailsa. I have a love/hate relationship with winter. Here’s mine from the archives. No wonderful snowfalls here yet to motivate a photographic adventure. Wet snow and then rain. https://odaciuk.wordpress.com/2017/11/14/travel-theme-frozen/

Somebody forgot fall! Thankfully, it’s coming back in my neighborhood (though it forgot the colorful leaves). https://wordpress.com/post/ididitforjohnny.wordpress.com/6060

It is just starting to heat up here in Melbourne – we’re having a week of 30 plus degrees (Celcius) so here is a memory of being frozen:
