frosty Portland

This morning is beautiful – icy cold and bright sunshine.

Frosty ice and lone webs

Basil was quick to run back in the house

but I had to capture the crisp sunny morning.

Perfect Sunday.

wow. amazing photos! I don’t recall it ever being already that cold/frosty in Portland this time of year! (but I left 17 years ago so my memory could be a bit shoddy)

Ah! Sounds divine! LA is not behaving like it’s usual ultra sunny self and it’s so rainy and dark today. Blah, I don’t feel like leaving the house. I hate days like that. Anyhow, Im glad basil got to relish the frosty morning too. He deserves to be spoiled.

It is great to ‘meet’ you too. I love how MoFo always gives me new blogs to add to my regular list.
These photos are beautiful! Though I do not agree with frosty weather, no I do not. I am a warmth girl all the way. ;)
I really do hope to make it back to Portland soon (when it is not frosty, obviously). I need to eat a MacNoCheeto from HGS (I had the special instead when I was there) and also spend an entire day eating my way through Back To Eden, or my life will never be complete.

38 spabettie November 23, 2011 at 9:53 pm

oooh, eating your way through Back To Eden??? if you do that, PLEASE let me know first so I can join you!! :D I feel so lucky to have HGS within… oh, a five mile radius whenever I NEED it. ;) and yes, it is a NEED.
