Ice Drop for Green Thumb Sunday

How to join Green Thumb Sunday


My little Wild Rose bush is still beautiful in the winter.

Gone are the abundant bright pink blooms of the summer and fall.

The pretty little green buds and foliage are also missing.

After a recent ice storm, a crystal drop was formed atop one of the dried thorny stalks.

As soon as the temperature rises above freezing, this little work of art will be gone.

Mother Nature sure knows how to put on a show!

  1. What a great capture! At first I thought you had the photo upside down... because ice drops normally form downward. Then I realized that this was the way it was formed. It's just lovely!

  2. Beautiful photo. I've never seen ice build up the top of something like that--it looks like it should be reversed. Obviously, I don't know much about ice! Happy GTS,

  4. Great photo.

    We just have some rain+cold last night that equaled a lot of ice. I should get out there and take some pics like yours.

    Happy GTS
