This week Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack has posted the theme Glass. Immediately I thought about my recent trip home where I walked along the Parkway in Niagara Falls. All the trees, fence posts, street signs and lamp posts were in cased in
glass, I mean ice thanks to the freezing cold temps. I felt like I was inside of glass menagerie of beautiful figurines. I have seen this phenomenon before and each time it is different, but equally as beautiful. My only wish was I went on a sunny day. How everything would have sparkled and dazzled in the sun light. It was a nice touch that a few days before everything was also covered in snow. It added to the effect.
Bus loads of tourists were in awe of everything encased in so much ice. The additional weight even broke off some branches or bent some trees into usual shapes and designs.

Doing this week’s challenge together I came across 2 more pics of Sun that I wanted to share… I know it is late and we are onto a new challenge, but am I excused since the others were on time?
Sun or Heavenly Rays in St. Peter's Basilica?
Ice storms are happening more frequently as the world weather changes… they are dangerous to drive in not to mention horrible to chip your car out of a cocoon of ice to get into it again, but so beautiful as they change the world into a glass menagerie…
Nature's Glass Menagerie
Do you think these late entries were worth it?
