Indy Ice Tree

It's actual name is Veal's Ice Tree. I saw a photo of it posted on Violet's instagram and instantly wanted to see it up close. I love quirky, handcrafted local things like this. The tree has been around since 1961. It was originally created when the Veal family was spraying a mist of water on the hill south of the house to make an ice slide onto the pond. A strong wind blew the spray onto some of the bushes. The result was so beautiful that the family sprayed water directly onto the bushes and the ice tree was the result. They color it with food coloring mixed with water and spray the colored water on the tree with a garden sprayer. The tree is about 40 feet tall. Kinda neat huh?
