  1. That’s one of my favorite things that happens with a freeze. It’s the excess moisture that gets trapped in the stem (most likely these are all milkweeds, since that’s what I usually see) and when it freezes outside it bursts through the fragile stem and makes those beautiful patterns. After that, the stems collapse down and it’s ready for next year.

    Looks like the cold air was near the ground in a pocket, it looks really cool when the explosions happen higher up on the stem, but you have to see them early in the morning before they melt.
