By Colleen Bardin

I have some pictures of lovely frost flowers, or ice flowers, that I took on our farm right here in Adair County in early December.

These were found on crownbeard plants beside a creek. I also have pictures of the very first ones I saw in 2007.

We live off East 80. I saw my first frost flowers a couple of years ago. Can't believe I've lived this long and had never seen these lovely formations before. God has given us so much beauty if we will just stop and look.
