The Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Ice Flowers on the Windshield

To all of my blogging friends living in warmer climes: I’d wish I could send you real flowers. But with temperatures much below freezing in the morning all I can offer you are the ice flowers on our car’s windshield. Applying a little bit of imagination, I found feathers, mountain ranges, canyons, and of course delicate flowers.  Enjoy.

    I especially like the last photo. It looks a bit like etched stemware from the early 1900s.

    Excellent! This was a great idea. The patterns are actually lovely, and what a playground for the imagination. Mountainscapes, feathers, a Chinese dragon, and I see in Linda’s comment, etched stemware.

      Thank you, Robert, for your insighful comment! Mother Nature is the greatest artist. Sometimes one needs to bend down in adoration to see her beauty.

    See, you have “flowers,” too. What intricate, feathery forms.

      For the real flowers we may have to wait here until April. It snowed again yesterday.

    Beautiful! No ice on our windshields since last year. I guess we are heading for another drought!

      I’d wish I could share our overabundance of moisture with you. We have so much snow that our forecasters are already talking about the danger of flooding later on in the spring.
