Recently our vintage 120 year old glass greenhouse became a magnificent backdrop for a talented artist.

A playful prankster who finds great fun in nipping noses, ears and fingers as well as an enormous amount of satisfaction and delight in painting ice patterns on lucky window panes.

Jack Frost is believed by some to be the mischievous son of the Frost King. He is known as King of The Winter Spirits and a member of the Fairy Realm. A talented traveling artist we consider ourselves fortunate to be the recipient of such fine artistry.

Jack Frost is said to have the power to freeze shadows and some even say he paints the beautiful fern like whirls you see frozen on  window panes.

When a glass window pane is exposed to outside air that is extremely cold and inside air that is warmer and moist, water vapor condenses on the glass forming (Jack Frost) patterns. Imperfections and scratches or dust particles on the glass influence the types of patterns Jack Frost can create. Often called fern frost or ice flowers because of the patterns created.
