Wintry Miracles

“Wintry Miracles”

Frost Flowers
Frost flowers aren’t real flowers at all. They form when air temperatures fall below freezing, but the water in the ground is not frozen. The water/sap in the plant pushes out at the stem’s base forming beautiful ribbons of ice. These amazing sculptures do not grow on all plants, which add to the rarity of finding them because the weather conditions have to be perfect too. 

The Lord’s creations never cease to amaze me. His miracles are abundant if we look for them.

You can view other photos of frost flowers in posts I have written here, here, and here.  

Other words I have found for frost flowers are: ice ribbons, ice flowers and crystallofolia.

Have you had the privilege to see these wintry miracles?
