GREAT!!! Never seen before. Indeed, I thought is was grass.....but...er.....how comes, it's pushed op from the ground. An 'icicle' I can understand, but this.....UH!?
Very strange and particular!
Frank, I thought you might be amazed by this. It still amazes me a little every time I see it. When the ground is damp and the night comes and brings the freezing temperatures, the water freezes and I don't know why, but the freezing water rises up in these columns. On top of the ice grass, sometimes there is a thin vertical layer of ice with a bit of soil and you don't realize it is ice grass until you step and sink and crunch on it. It grows out of soil that doesn't have plants on it, like in places where the soil has been disturbed for plantings or by this river where the plants don't grow yet.
It really tickled me to get to show this to you!
Näyttää sitä jäätä löytyvän muualtakin kuin täältäpäin!
