Recently a friend of mine posted a link to this NPR article (NPR-ticle?) about a “meadow” of “frost flowers” mid-ocean. Some beautiful things, courtesy of Nature (and Matthias Wietz, who captured the moment in photos). In honor of our few brief wintry days in Austin, I thought it would be fun to share.
Gorgeous, right? Something I would love to see in person. Lacking that opportunity, there’s nothing like Googling the term “frost flowers” and seeing what else comes up! (An approach that both Neatorama.com and I seem to have shared.) Look at all these glorious examples!
Even some from Texas – not a place you’d first look for anything frost-related.

And a time-lapse of some forming!
