Has anyone ever seen a frost flower? Don’t Pick It!

I must admit I did not find this on my own, it was sent to my email. It is so beautiful that I have to share it. Click the link to see them at the Farmer’s Almanac.

Frost flowers are found in Ozark Mountains, also called Ozark Plateau,heavily forested group of highlands in the south-central United States,

extending southwestward from St. Louis, Mo, to the Arkansas River .

A frost flower is a name commonly given to a condition in which thin layers

of ice are extruded from long-stemmed plants in autumn or early winter.

The thin layers of ice are often formed into exquisite patterns that curl into

petals” that resemble flowers.

I went to the Farmer’s Almanac and here is the link to these incredible formations, take a look.

About alwaysgail photography by Gail Fischer

I am a photographer who loves to explore everywhere and everything. The journey began in Covington, KY where all the back alleys were sources of great places of visual imagery. After college the desert outside of Tucson, AZ became my place to watch sunsets and seek solitude. Later, NYC was totally exciting and the years there led to a career as a shooter.
