Freezing Rain

December 17th, 2008

While taking a bowl of kitchen waste out to the compost pile yesterday I noticed some rain had frozen on the Red Russian kale leaves. So beautiful, especially with the purple veins of the kale running underneath it!

This is what you get when you have a 50 degree day with rain and a 30 degree drop in temperature by nightfall. Everything is covered in tiny jewels the next day!
