Enjoy winter’s silence
The silence of winter brings beautiful glistening designs of nature. Delicate fragile fern, feathery like white crystals on clear glass, simple frost on our window panes.
Water vapor from the air condenses as frost on the inside surface of the window. Window frost forms when a pane of glass is exposed to below-freezing temperatures on the outside and moist air on the inside, often making elaborate patterns of crystal growth.
Window frost was more common in the past, when houses still had single-pane windows.
There are many miracles in the cold winter season that brings us a chance to slow down and find solitude. This is the silence of winter!
