Stunning roadside attraction
Lately I've started taking a new route to work that allows me to spend almost half of my commuting time on back roads instead of the highway. There are so many benefits to this, one of which is that I have observed lots of plants that look beautiful in winter. Some of these have berries, and others are just colorful bare branches. This morning, in a field, I saw a whole line of bushes that were covered in ice and looked like crystal chandeliers growing up out of the ground. I wish I had my camera with me. They were just so beautiful.
