What Ice and Tin Do

You have to double click and enlarge the picture, to appreciate how this ice flowed down the branches of the Bittersweet vine.
I bought this metal oval art a couple of years ago and it is aging well in the garden. I thought it ironic to hang such a piece while it depicts flowers itself. A flower within flowers.
The droplets of water quick frozen in almost mid-drip ? at the end of the twigs.

The end picture is finally the whole oval metal work with the branches almost waving across it.

Thanks For 2 Day said...

Hi Joy, The ice is beautiful on the branches. It's very artsy. It's fun to find something pretty out of an otherwise cold, dreery day, huh?? I know you Canadians have to keep coming up with floral scenes during the winter any way you can--even in tin and ice!!! It's a real challenge so far up north, I'm sure:) But, I'm being serious when I say, it's not only pretty to look at, but interesting to think about how water can form such beauty! Jan

Hi Gail .. there is nothing like nature .. it always has some surprises to show us how creative it is !

Hi Jan .. I find that too ! .. when I see something as intricate as this I think of the process of how it was formed as well .. today we have snow .. the weather keeps us on our toes for sure !

There is truly beauty in all the seasons. I cannot imagine living anywhere else even though the winters can be a wee bit long!

Giddy.. so true eh ? .. such extreme seasons .. if the winters were just a little shorter .. and the summers a little less humid and hot .. well it would be perfect ? LOL
Longer Autumns too !!
