Into the Deep Freeze

Today’s post contains a few more ice-covered plants in my rural Missouri landscape:

Several years ago, I planted quite a few Fragrant Sumac shrubs, a plant that a lot of the wildlife love. As with many other plants, our warm winter has caused buds to appear on these plants:

One of the most interesting plants I discovered were the many Aster wildflowers, most with seedheads still attached and encased in ice:
