According to Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frost_flower
A frost flower is a name commonly given to a condition in which thin layers of ice are extruded from long-stemmed plants in autumn or early winter. The thin layers of ice are often formed into exquisite patterns that curl into "petals" that resemble flowers.

They've been very photogenic this year.

The problem is TMF is breaking the link. It's incomplete. Let's try these shortened links.

Thanks for letting me know that the links were broken, PSUEngineer.

It wasn't TMF that caused the problem; it was me. I copied the links from my submitted post at the RELE board. Should have copied as I was composing it.

Thanks again.

I don't recall ever seeing one of those frost flowers in person.

Yeah, that happens a lot around here. Everyone probably does it at least once.

I see them rarely. You need a lot of humidity and sudden sharp cold. I'd rather look at the pictures anyway.
