Frost flowers: Nature doesn’t hate us

Frost flowers: Nature doesn’t hate us

As everyone is shoveling their cars out this morning, it’s nice to have a reminder that snow and ice can be very beautiful, and not always make us want to migrate to Florida en masse.

Here is a naturally occurring phenomenon known as a frost flower. A frost flower is made up of thin sheets of ice that have layered over long-stemmed plants.

So cheer up as you’re throwing shovel after shovel-full of snow around–something beautiful may be happening nearby.
