Ice on the Candytuft
Time for another Macro Flower Saturday and I'm running out of subjects. Last week, I bought flowers to photograph and this morning I went out in 20-degree weather to photograph frosty foliage and found tiny flowers on the evergreen perennial Candytuft---with icy decorations. Candytuft grows in an old whiskey barrel near my back door, and the deer love it, especially in the spring. If they allow it to bloom, it is loaded with tiny white flowers all summer long. I'm not sure why there are flowers now, because winter is definitely on the way!
