Impromptu Ice Sculptures

I figured that a hot day in July deserved some cooling off, so I wanted to share a few photos that I took this winter.  Ornamental grasses give a wonderful textural element in the summer landscape, but waiting for spring to cut them back can lead to surprises in the winter garden such as these impromptu ice sculptures!

Our irrigation system at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden was in the process of being winterized and a malfunction in the middle of a chilly night caused these beautiful ice sculptures on ornamental grasses and trees in our parking lot.  Don't they make you feel cooler?
