Hoar in the Garden


An early morning peek into the pumpkin patch shows the deer fence frosted with hoar, similar to lickable frosting on a cake. Hoar frost happens when the temperature of objects, in the night, falls below the air temps. The moisture in the air then forms crystals on the surfaces of every thing in its path. Hoar frosting transforms a garden skeleton into ghostly patterns. Enjoy!
