2 more pictures in notes above ! :)

Today's surprise was waiting for me when I looked out our bedroom back door, which opens up onto our tiny upstairs deck. The eves were bristling with icicles and they were brilliant with the sun shining on them! I was so excited I ran in to tell Steve so he could see too. Both of us had a lot of fun taking pictures!

James Grover Thurber (December 8, 1894 – November 2, 1961) was an American author, journalist, cartoonist, and celebrated wit. Thurber was best known for his cartoons and short stories, published mainly in The New Yorker magazine and collected in his numerous books. One of the most popular humorists of his time, Thurber celebrated the comic frustrations and eccentricities of ordinary people. Wikipedia: James Thurber

Beautiful icicles =) That phrase by James Grover Thurber is really interesting and challenging. I need to digest it a little...

A deep frozen masterpiece Janet.........I especially like wonderful shaped bokeh getting smaller in size from top to bottom and the hint of reflected colour in the icicle!

Lovely image Janet, and a great quote from Thurber. His "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is an all time favourite.
