I need to know your technique for applying ice to plants. This is excellent.

You made me laugh out loud, Ken. Isn’t it great! There are more examples coming up. I still have to ask my physicist friend if he has any idea why this happens several inches above the level of the water.

This is proving to be a magical sequence of images, Linda. Originally I thought the ice was at water level in a stream but with this image I’m not sure at all. Whatever the crenelations are delightful. I’ve never seen anything quite like this.

Thank you, Andy. These photographs are of the edges of a pond, where the water hardly moves. My latest thought (in total ignorance) is that light snow flakes fell on these sticks and branches and didn’t make it all the way to the water. Then they somehow transformed themselves from snow to ice. I’m probably all wrong. I e-mailed my physicist friend and am waiting to hear back what he thinks.

I want to know, too, because – at the time I thought it was due to rising and falling water levels but I guess not. like I mentioned earlier, I saw this once and was also enchanted and puzzled by it. Maybe I can dig up the photos. At the time I thought it was due to rising and falling water levels but I guess not. This one’s like a pretty lady with a sparkling, handcrafted necklace. I don’t usually make associations like that, but there you go.

Thanks, Lynn. I will be sure to post my friend’s speculations—if he has any.
