Icicles on Sunday

Last night was my once-a-year chance to get all dressed up to attend the annual employee party that my company throws so needless to say, there wasn't a lot of time for blogging!  No doubt pictures from the event will be forthcoming soon but in the meantime I thought I'd share a shot with you that I took while out at Meetinghouse Rocks in Norwichtown on Friday.

Morgen over at It's a Blog Eat Blog World shared some of his Michigan icicles on Saturday and they definitely make these look tiny in comparison!  Truth be told I much prefer our smaller icicles here in Connecticut and rather liked the way the water was dripping from the rocks and forming the small icicles.

With the geography that we have here in Connecticut, it's not hard to imagine that most of the land was carved out of giant glaciers as they left us with some very beautiful landscape.  Sometimes it almost looks like the trees are barely hanging on to the side of the hill like this white birch here!

Here's hoping that you have a beautiful Sunday no matter where you are and what you're doing.  I'll be at work fieling 911 calls while resting up from last night's festivities and giving my feet a rest as they are definitely not used to wearing dress shoes!

  1. Cool icicles. Ha ha. Trying to be funny.

    "I love the hIlls of my Connecticut, I love its valleys and its streams" - a song I learned as a child.
    That about sums up what you are saying about how the land around the state was carved out of giant glaciers. There sure are lots of hills and rocky areas.

    I love seeing the icicles on the side of the road. Winter's stalactites (or stalagmites? I can never remember which is which).

  8. While I adore Birch trees, icsicles, not so much. Because that would mean it was cold. Very cold.

    I remember eating icsicles when I was a kid. A winter delicacy perhaps? :-0
