An icecold decoration.

frost in the garden isblomster-ice-pattern

This flower pot usually doesn´t have any decoration. It lives its life as a simple and brown pot. For a short time, – as long as the frosty weather keep everything under the freezing point, – it has changed into a beautiful and harmonious decorated piece of art, made by nature himself. Amazing! We call it “Ice-flowers” .

    What a pretty design! I wonder if it’s possible to paint the pot (outside of course) before the ice melts and preserve the design?

    I thought of that too, but I can`t see how…another thing is that the shadows will take a looong time to make! It looks like art noveau.

    How about spray paint it? When the ice melt, the design will stay.

    Yes, that could be interesing to try…not a bad idea. Still the shadows will miss.

    How beautiful! It looks like fine lace. “Ice flowers” is a very good name for it. Sometimes we get ice patterns like this on our windows and say that Jack Frost has been painting them (see “Frosty Dawn” on Torch Lake Views for an example).

    I think the delight of ice flowers and Jack Frost’s paintings is that they are temporary. You can’t go to the museum and look at examples. You have to be out and about with your eyes open to whatever marvels you may meet.

    You are right, Gerry, the fact that it is temporary has a major influence of the joy of seeing it.
    Thank you for telling about Jack Frost, I like the name and I will introduce him to my Danish suroundings, and let him work here too.

    I think the best way is what you did, capture in image form, nature always creates beautiful design.

    Thank you, Yellow, Ginger and Deirdrea. I am glad that I can share this sight with you, I still find it amazing. Next day, it had all disappeared. No sight of it at all.

    Ice is rare here in Houston and I would not have thought it could do this. It is beautiful.
