An ice crowned seed head from my garden.
Tiny icicles on the brink of melting away.
Mosaic patterns forming on the flora as the ice crowns begin to surrender to the warmth of the sun.
How quickly we can shift here from powdered snow, to rain, to freezing rain and back again.

It’s great to look through your lens, Karen.
Always think it’s cold here and then I see you shots! These are gorgeous – frozen explosions, and makeshift casts.
Karen, these are a fantastic series of photos ~ the macro of your first photo, such precise focus and perspective shows the beauty of what the world really holds no matter what the situation. You’ve got an eye for patterns and possibilities. Wishing you a great start to 2017.
Love your craft, and how you can make ice feel warm…
