He's At It Again!

Yep, he made icicles for me again! It is supposed to get into the 70's this coming week so, you won't have to worry about seeing icicles for a while, at least not from me. It's cool though,

to see how the water freezes on the weeds,
trees,
branches,
grass

and leaves.

I guess the weight of the ice made these lean as if the wind were blowing, we know the wind wasn't blowing or it wouldn't haven't got this cold here.
I hope you weren't too bored with icicles again! Florida Fun!!

We haven't even had icycles yet. This is neat. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Darla said...

Valerie, as you can tell we have to make our own with the sprinkler.
Just wait until we post about the snow we make!

That looks mighty cold. I am assuming that the icicles keep the things from freezing?

Martha said...

These are so cool! I never thought about making them intentionally! I'm going to remember that if we have any nights in my area of Florida this winter! :-)

Martha said...

I meant to say any freezing nights, LOL!

What fun! I guess he made those icicles in the other post too after your freeze and I didn't pick up on it! I bet you are getting the looks! :-)

How fun, it would never have occurred to me to make my own. ;)

Thw icicles make the garden look like in a fairytale. Is sleeping beauty passing through?

Jean said...

Darla, I would love to share my icycles with you! I have the ones made by Mother Nature and all the snow to go with it! I posted my 6 things. Thanks for the tag! Jean

Hi Darla,
I think it's just great that your hubby makes icicles for you. I love it! In fact, YOU MAKE ME SMILE! Come over and visit! No strings attached! No Rules!

Darla: You live in Florida and you shouldn't be able to make ice sculptures. You shuld see them on my house right now. I didn't have to spray.

Laurie and Chris said...

We have more than enough icicles in our neck of the woods. We have about 3 feet of snow already!! BURR!!!

Wow! These shots are just amazing especially to me since it never gets this cold here.

MrBrownThumb said...

I've never seen grass captured in such unusual formed ice. That's pretty cool.

Carletta said...

After seeing this again I know I just have to try it! I love the one of the grass.
I just saw your comment to Valerie about making your own snow - I can hardly wait to see. I'm wondering how....

Did you know that you can freeze bubbles too? It really needs to be below 20' to work well & no wind. I've done this with my ds since he was small. We go out just before bedtime, cover the yard with bubbles & they instantly freeze. They become small frozen balls that you can pick up. It's really cool. You can even see the colors in them. We go out early the next morning to see how many made it through the night without being trampled by critters. Jen
