Another plant, longer ice

Greenbrier Leaf with Icicle at Tip 2443

On March 4th, as you’ve heard, I went to Great Hills Park because we’d had overnight rain and some of it had frozen in the early morning air, giving me a rare chance—but less rare than usual this winter—for nature pictures that include ice. The previous post showed you a thinly encased twig of an elbowbush, and now here’s some more-extreme ice at the tip of a greenbrier leaf, Smilax bona-nox. The vertical stripes in this column of ice remind me of similar though shorter lines in a lengthening drop of water I showed here a couple of years ago.
