[Looking up through the trees — green ponderosa needles capped with tufts of snow, all in front of a deep blue sky veiled in sheer cirrus clouds. ]
Friday there was surprise! Five inches of snow!
It was LOVELY.
Saturday I hadda go outside to take jewelry pics anyway, so I went for a lil walk.
[ A print from a boot. The tread design is a stylized tipi with a campfire in front of it and mountains rising behind. ]
Plenty of snow still clung where it had fallen …
[ Tiny branches, some already bearing what will eventually be buds, hold a tuft of snow. In the background are more bushes. ]
… but most of what was on the roof has already melted, leaving ice-covered branches.
[ One twig is coated in ice almost an inch thick. Behind it, sturdier branches hold even thicker ice, as well as icicles. ]
No, I didn’t touch ANY of those plants while I was outside. None at all whatsoever, not even a little bit.
