  1. The last image reminds me of Miss Lily’s skeleton. What is this, really? It must be bubbles at the ends of some kind of branching plant. I love these images.

    • I can see why you would be reminded of Miss Lily’s skeleton. It is a plant of some sort, but I’m not sure what kind. I’ll have to take a look next time I’m up there. My parents will know what it is. I’m glad you like the images. Thank you for staying with me on this very long journey through the ice. 🙂
