Plants Building Igloo's??? Strange Happening At The Inn Above Onion Creek
An interesting phenomenon occurred with the frost we received this morning. Overnight a small type of plant seemed to build a coat of ice for protection. The "coats" of ice are actually hollow and they resemble a tee-pee or igloo that has been built around the base of the stem. During breakfast at the Inn Above Onion Creek the guests were commenting on this strange happening and nobody had ever seen anything like it. Have any of you? If so we'd love to know about this process.
