Frost Flowers

Now that mornings are below freezing, frost flowers are forming. Moisture from plant stems expands and extrudes, then freezes upon contact with the air, forming ribbons of ice, ice needles, or other frosty forms.

Frost flowers only happen before the ground freezes.

Those people in the November of their lives are often still flowering. 78-year-old Bill still plays piano concerts. His 93-year-old friend George took up jogging at age 80. 88-year-old Trudy teaches painting at 2 nursing homes. We look to these stellar people as role models.  I want to be like that when i grow old.

 How will you flower in your old age when the body creaks and complains? What talent or passion or service will extrude from your life?
