I had never seen frost flowers anywhere besides pictures.
Wednesday morning on the way to work, I thought I saw paper trash wadded up in the freshly mown stumps of roadside weeds. I wondered who might have… then I realized that it was the first morning of temperatures significantly below freezing, directly on the heels of days that hit the 60’s.
It wasn’t trash — it was frost flowers, and lots of them.
