Aronia arbutifolia and Clethra fargesii 49095 encased in ice

The sun never came out which was both good and bad. Bad because there weren't and cool shots with the sun refracting through ice, but good because the ice stayed around so we could enjoy it all day.

The Aronia is just inside the entrance to the Bonsai Penjing Museum and the Clethra is along the path to the Pagoda in the Asian Collections. I'm always surprised by how long Aronia fruit lasts. It would seem that a nice nutritious native fruit would have a lot of animals after it but they often seem to spoil on the plant.
