At First, This Looks Like A Field Of White Flowers. But When You Look Closer, It's Something Even More Amazing.

At first, it might look like a field of white flowers. But it's a little too cold for the flowers to still be blooming. What could it be?

No, definitely not flowers.  

These blossoms are a winter phenomenon known as "frost flowers."

When plant stems and roots are not quite frozen and full of moisture, the moisture travels up to the higher part of the stem where it freezes. This creates the layers of ice.


Delicate flower petals form in the ice.

So pretty!

Frost flowers are a late fall and early winter phenomenon and depend on some very precarious conditions. These gorgeous frost flowers were photographed in Finland.
