melting summer

Thanks to a lovely blogging friend I have been able to breathlessly admire white "wintriness"....the kind of pristine white crystals I am never going to see here where we live.

So on this hot summer day of ours we decided, to make a couple of our own big summery backyard icicles to hang and admire in our garden.


And watch melt over a couple of hours......

Letting the drips land on grass, hands, heads, toes.....whatever would enjoy the cooling sensation and novelty most.....

Until nothing was left other than the jute rope, a petal or two and some pretty memories of moments just watching the melting....

how fabulous, such an innovative idea......i often make an ice bowl in the summer with flowers in it and then put in ice cream

That's a nice idea for a hot summer day. Thanks for your comment. I had no idea about the gag reflex. That is pretty cool--annoying, but cool.

Looks beautiful!
I did this in an ice cream container with little plastic dinosaurs and little odds and ends that you could freeze. On a hot summer day, my older two would have fun playing with the frozen ice excavating the toys.
