Amazing Frost Flower Pictures

What you are looking at are known as "Frost Flowers". These pictures were taken by Kristy Hibberts in Adairsville.

Frost flowers form only when the ground temperature is warm enough for the plant's root system to be active and the air temperature is cold enough to freeze the upward-flowing plant juices. The freezing juices may split open a whole section of stem and push out in a side-curling sheet, or it may emerge from small slits and form long, ribbonlike strands or flowerlike clusters.
