    • I love that image, Pam. It might be kind of interesting to collect a bunch of the little flowers and save them in the freezer for the summer time. 🙂

      • Certainly would make an elegant cool drink…..I guess I’ve seen that done with “frozen” pansy ice cubes in punch bowls in summer…..beautiful !

  2. Very nice! I wonder if you found the flower this way or if you froze it yourself (which is something I have experimented with).

    • Hi, Denise. Thanks so much for your visit. I did find the flower this way. There was an ice storm in Maine, and so everything outside was coated in a layer of ice. Lots of tiny little flowers all captured in coat of clear ice. 🙂

  5. Nice … soft … gentle. The rendering of color reminds me of materials of great antiquity bound in amber. Furthermore … great minds do indeed think alike … I was out with the camera yesterday capturing my own images of ice-bound this-and-that. Stay tuned to your reader! D

    • Thanks, Dave. I love how you’ve described this little flower. I’ll look forward to seeing your ice images!

  6. It’s endlessly fascinating how ice is able to transform things that we casually pass by into little gems of abstract art. I like the comparison to inclusions in amber, too!

    • Yes, I have a fascination with ice and how it transforms; you’ve expressed it wonderfully. We’re seeing a lot of that lately! 🙂

    • Yay! That makes me very happy. You wouldn’t believe how tiny this flower was. The ice magnifies it a bit. I found clusters of them, too, which I may also post. Little gems in the woods. 🙂

  8. It looks so like a lolly. Lovely.

    • Ha ha! That’s exactly it! 🙂 Now I’m always going to think of it that way. Thanks, Richard!
