These beautiful "snowflakes" made by resurrection fern blogger almost make me want to live somewhere where it is below freezing for weeks at a time. It has been snowy here and cold, but I don't think Portland would keep them cold enough long enough. But, my how beautiful! What a neat idea to encase things in ice.
The "snowflakes" are lace doilies frozen in round pans. See this post to see them twirling around on her porch
Here are some pinecones encased in ice. So neat.
