Trees in the snow
You can easily see tree form in the winter, but when a bit of snow is added, the branching and lines are vivid. It had only snowed about an hour when this picture was taken this afternoon, barely an inch of coverage, but it's a very heavy snow falling on cold, wet, freezing surfaces. Upon returning from the barn, the top of an old red pine fell, spooking Glori, who took off to the open pasture. And currently, our power is out due, I'm sure around here, to a fallen tree. So I expect to see changes along the trail next time I venture out in daylight. I know I'll be brushing snow off my azaleas and nandinas in the morning. Stay warm and dry, everybody!
