A great example of the beauty ice provides. Now we hope for no damage.
Those shrubs are as tough as a bag of hammers.
… a great adaptation.
Reminds me of an old fashioned Christmas tree! Very pretty!!
Down here, when a freeze is on the way, people hose down their shrubs to give them a coating of ice that helps to protect them. You don’t have to go to that effort — Nature does it for you!
Also a dripping roof when the snow melts. 😉
That looks so cold, but what a beautiful photo it made.
Another marvel from your winter wonderland!
Looking cold. I was checking the weather at home and saw they were already talking about mud season because of the temps fluctuating so much.
It’s crazy how the temps have been fluctuating so much. And blogging friends in other parts of the country have written that it’s the same where they live.
Looks so cool!
Huh. My roof is creating similar art. Must be a thing!
Melt and freeze!
yep. Today we started out at 40 something, then moved down to 28 by 1, and snow and already we have a couple inches…covering grass that was just surfacing after the last snow.
Strange erratic weather here, too. In all my years of living in Maine, I’ve never seen anything like this in February.
Beautiful, so long as the icicles are on one side of the window and the photographer is on the other. Brrr!
Yes, indeed! Would not want icicles like that in the house, that’s for sure.
Beautiful. Haven’t seen icicles like that since our Big Freeze a year ago. Meanwhile, down here in Texas, it’s 60, very windy, and supposed to go down to 28 tomorrow night. It keeps your head spinning (not to mention many changes of clothes).
This weather is yo-yoing in many places. In our area the weather is now so warm that the icicles have melted. Weird for Maine in February, that’s for sure.
Those are spectacular icicles! Stay warm.
Many thanks! The temp is shooting up again, and rain is in the forecast. Weird, weird winter.
We have just had a really bad storm – Storm Eunice – which has caused a lot of damage in some places. A very rare red warning for wind was in place from the Met Office and my house insurers sent me my policy number and instructions on how to claim just in case! Luckily he only damage here was one tree blown down and it missed everything important. Weird weather indeed.
So glad to read the damage was minimal around your house.
Wow! Those are some icicles!
Indeed they are! Thanks, Susan. Since I took that picture, the weather has become so warm that the icicles have melted. They are now gone.
What up and down weather we are having at the moment.
I’ve never seen anything like it in all my long years of living in Maine.
I am not surprised. We are in the middle of Storm Eunice. I have had to stay at home in case of getting blown off balance by a gust!
Phew! Yes, stay safe.
We are headed into some really cold overnight lows for here this week. We had a 73 degree day last week, and this week we will see 10 or 11 degrees by Wednesday morning.
It seems these extreme fluctuations are happening in many places.
There, I have caught up with you again, Laurie! You have had quite the cold and snow back east. The weather has been like a roller coaster here. It got up to 73 here the other day! Now it is back in the 40s, with mists and rain again.
Thanks so much!
Great icicles! Better hanging on the shrubs than from the roof.
You’ve certainly had a big blast of winter. It does look beautiful (at least from this distance)! 😀
We have. But now it’s warm, and rain is in the forecast. Yuck.
Yup, reminds me of the ice storm that plowed through here not too far back. Be careful outdoors!
Yes, very slippery.
They look beautiful Laurie! ❤
Baby, it’s cold outside! 🙂
It surely was!
What a magical interplay of the taut green needles, the flat red oak leaves and the icicles. Beautifully composed — by nature and you!
Oh, thanks so much!
It is a pity that you can’t keep them for next year’s Christmas decorations.
You bet! Alas, they are already gone.
At first, I thought there were plastic icicles (like I used to see in the 60’s) on a real tree! Very cool photo! Stay warm!
Too funny! Those icicles were the real thing, but the temp has risen so much that the icicles are now gone.
Beautiful and a definite sign to stay indoors enjoying movies!!🙂
Beautiful. And so fleeting!
Many thanks! And so true about the fleeting nature of the icicles. Today, they are gone.
Those are GINORMOUS icicles! I can say confidently & resoundingly that I have NEVER encountered anything like this!
Tee-hee! Fun to travel around the world with blogging friends, isn’t it?
That’s so pretty. Almost like a Christmas tree. 🙂
Yew nicely decorated but nature and humans.
Yes, indeed! For this, Nature must receive all the credit.
