Frost Flowers for The Homemaking Party


Welcome to The Homemaking Party! We've been below freezing the last couple days. This morning, Jamie and I took a little walk and I took some photos of frost flowers.

Frost flowers are a cool phenomenon we didn't have in Oregon---probably because the ground froze hard really fast once the cold weather came.

Frost flowers bloom when cracks form in the stem of a plant and its sap seeps out, making pretty frozen ribbons. The ground must not be frozen though, even though the temperature is at freezing. It's actually a pretty cool thing that probably doesn't occur in very many places.

The best way to find frost flowers in the Ozarks is to look for what looks like toilet paper strung around the base of plants. You'll have to get real close before realizing it's actually a beautiful frost flower!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a great week!

  2. Interesting about the frost flowers!! I don't know if my Short Story Link Party is appropriate for your party so I didn't link it up but I invite you to linkup with me! This is a creative writing exercise for fun and without a lot of editing. Just start typing and see what you come up with! Remember, no story is too short! See the party on my site for the current prompt :)

  6. Wow, this planet never ceases to amaze me. I have never seen or heard of frost flowers. There is another phenomenon called "hoar frost", which I saw one year here in snowy Wisconsin, but had never seen or heard of before I saw it that year.
