Strange Ice Flowers

The other morning I was headed out to feed the goats and came upon these strange little ice flowers in the grass. They were the strangest ice formation I had ever seen.
They came right out of the grass and were paper thin little flowers. I picked one up and it was nothing but ice and quickly melted in my hand.
The picture does not do them justice. Water does amazing things with cold air involved.

Have any of you ever seen anything like this in your area? I would love to learn how they form.
