Ever hear of Hoarfrost?

It is formed when solid surfaces are cooled below the dew point of the adjacent air as well as below the freezing point of water.
There are not many opportunities to take pictures of this because it only happens once in a while. So, The last two days it has been pretty out in the morning with all this frost.
I heard from my husband Tom that our weather man that he listens to and reads his blog, stated that this was hoarfrost and all should get out and take pictures. My husband was pretty impressed with the pictures. Thanks Honey!

All of these picutures were taken in my yard or from my driveway. I have more but only selected a few to share. I am happy with how they all turned out.
