Traced Against the Sky

     The "wintry mix" weather moved on to the east Wednesday morning, leaving school delays, snow to be shoveled, and sights like these. I've lived in this country for more than 35 years now, but this sort of scene is still exotic to me.

Looking almost straight up. The "tufts" on the branches are tufts of snow.
Another silver maple. Looking more to the east, so lighting is different.
Looking east toward my daughter's school (small red-orange arrow.)
The neighbor's crabapples.
Colorado spruce, Picea pungens.
Black Hills spruce, P. glauca densata.

She has one brown eye and one blue; her sister Boudica's eyes are both blue.
Regular readers may recognize the Black Hills spruce; I wrote another post about it recently, here.

Grainne showed she knows what slushy snow is for: splashing a human! I'm glad she can't hold a snowball, or she and my daughter would gang up on me!
