Frostweed ice for the second time in five days

with 17 comments


The Austin weather forecast for yesterday morning had been predicting 15°, and that’s about what it was when I checked our outdoor thermometer on Friday morning. As much as I don’t thrive in frigid temperatures, I made myself go back to the convenient frostweed (Verbesina virginica) colony in Great Hills Park. This time only a few plants had done the ice trick, and it differed from last Sunday by mostly not scrolling around each plant’s stalk but rather taking ribbony shapes leading away from the stalk.



So much the better for variety.
