My dead peonies caught my attention this afternoon. It looks more like an icicle plant than a peony right now. It sits under the eaves and water has been dripping down from it, creating an amazing winter scene. I am tired of winter but even in my grumpy winter mood, I am still captured with what beauty winter can bring. The icicles are the jewels of winter.
