Frozen


I decided I would try to freeze a flower to see what it would look like encrusted with ice. I bought some cheap roses from the supermarket, cut off a bud & put it into a container of water. I then popped it into the freezer for 24 hours. This is the result. I quite like it. How about you?

What a great idea, Carol

and a stunning result! The rose is majestic, somehow sad looking, but still beautiful!
