Long, busy day ahead, so there won't be a long post. Here's a picture, though, from last Sunday morning. This was during the freezing rain, before it stopped freezing and everything melted. I loved the look of these coneflower seedheads encased in ice. This is not the giant purple species but a more delicate coneflower, with a tall, slender seedhead and (when in bloom) delicate, drooping, pale yellow petals. Right now it's all potential, reminding me of Aristotle, who believed with all his heart that the chicken came before the egg.
