Snow laden pine
bows to the birch
winter takes a curtain call.

Love the textures and text, not so keen on the snow. Hasn’t the light been unusual? Thanks for the quick reaction to my most recent posting!
Out where I am, winter’s far from leaving …
Make that “leaving” in both senses of the word. It also reminds me of Hopkins’s “Goldengrove unleaving,” and the picture reminds me of birch bark from my childhood in a place where those trees grow. The only white bark In central Texas is from sycamores.
It used to snow heavy here in central Colorado , this does make me lonely for snow .
We are having a temporary spring here. My windows are open. We could very well get more snow but I am enjoying this spring preview.
Ethereal. Lovely! Thanks for your visits to my site…much appreciated.
I was so surprised to see it snow so hard, but spring is coming! Once again, I love your poetry!!
like this-we are getting snow as well.
Love your picture and words… More snow and very cold winds here too.
The snow looks so soft and fluffy … like cotton.
Great shot …..
Winter’s last hurrah. Woke up this morning with some of the white stuff on the ground too.
I really like this one
Hi. I can just imagine that pine bowing to the birch! Jane
Very fine and the matching words were well done, too!
I miss birch!
So beautiful. I love when our Georgia White Pines fill up with snow. It is a slice of Heaven.
Love snow on a pine tree and also the bark of a birch especially against snow – nice to see them together
