Today's Flowers: Ice Buds

The main thing growing at my house this morning is icicles.

It occurred to me that some of the bushes and vines have premature buds.

I carefully walked around photographing them.

This is the kind of weather where walking is tricky. I almost needed ice skates.

I hope none of your plants were damaged by the ice! I'm also glad you didn't fall.

The only good thing about freezing rain is the ice encapsulating the plant materials! The second image is my favourite!!
