I Had No Idea This Winter Phenomenon Even Happened. And Now I Can’t Stop Looking At It… Wow.

If you were walking through a field during the winter and happened upon a beautiful clearing, full of dazzlingly white blooms, you would probably think they were late-blooming flowers. Upon closer inspection, though, you’ll realize that maybe they aren’t flowers at all…

Although this field seems to be filled with beautiful white blossoms, it’s not.

These “flowers” are a strange phenomenon known as frost flowers.

The phenomenon occurs when plant stems and roots are not quite frozen and full of moisture. As that moisture is transmitted up to the higher part of the stem, it freezes, creating layers of ice.

Those ice layers form into delicate flower “petals.”

And they are absolutely gorgeous.

Frost flowers normally occur in the late fall or early winter, when plants are just alive and still have moisture in them. They are rare and the conditions have to be just right to create them. to see  As you can see, thanks to the beautiful shots of the ice flowers in Findland, it’s one natural winter phenomenon you’d be lucky to catch.
