Hoar Frost

According to the Online Dictionary, hoar frost is “Frozen dew that forms a white coating on a surface.”

We’ve seen plenty hoar frost this winter.  This picture reminds me of the flocking on a Christmas tree.

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”  
―     J.R.R. Tolkien,     The Fellowship of the Ring
