Amandaville, KY, 11:23amCT, Sunday, November 28, 2010 - It seems that the frost flowers are blooming early this year. Although the definition and form of these early blooms may not be the quality of last year, the size is greatly increased. However the photos from last year had brilliant sunshine and today the fog greatly inhibited my attempts to increase the definition.

I have searched high and low for Adair County Frost Flowers but to no avail, although these were less than a half mile from Adair County right beside Hwy 704 at Hopewell Acres, the Chowning place this morning.
