Clematis in Winter

Those of you who have followed this blog for a while know that I have a fondness for Clematis in its various stages throughout the seasons.  No matter how many photographs I have of it, I just can’t resist taking more.  I am fascinated by its many transformations.

Frost in a window with a very slight boost to the color.  I used a piece of black foam core outside the window (breaking a mirror and almost breaking my neck in the process) to bring out the flames of the frost.

Ice Baubles

Little Pie made “Ice Baubles” this weekend, something fun to do in the very cold weather. Here are Little Pie’s instructions (in her words) for making “Ice Baubles”:

1.  You just go outside and lay out some plastic picnic plates on the side porch.

2.  Pour water into the plates.

3.  You collect whatever you want to put into your baubles:  pine needles, leaves, berries–lots of nature!

3.  Decorate the  plates with water in them.

4.  Leave them overnight to freeze!

5. OH! Don’t forget the string! You have to cut a piece of string and lay it in the plate, too, along with the nature decorations before it freezes, so you can hang your bauble.  I hang mine from my swing set!  We bring my swings inside during the winter, so then I can decorate my swing set with ice baubles!

6. You can pop the baubles out of the plates the next morning and hang them. It’s easy! And fun!
