01.04.2021 Snowy Birches

We had snow overnight and into this morning so out I went.  I was uninspired by both the dismal lighting and finding less snow on the trees where I went than near home.  Should have just walked out behind the house. I had given up when I headed to do a couple of errands and drove by this little stand of birches on the UMass campus.

Three cheers for peripheral vision.

    We have a lovely birch in our front garden here; I have always loved them with snowy frosting.

    I love birch trees – we have one here and had them in our previous gardens too. They’re so delicate in the snow! 🙂

    • We have several gray birches which are not as appealing as the white paper bark birch. of which we have a couple. We also have a few black birches. (seriously…spell check doesn’t know the word birches and wanted to change it to bitches…baaaad spellcheck).

        LOL! Silly spellcheck! I haven’t seen black birches growing, though I did once see one in a garden centre with a gorgeous deep chocolatey coloured bark. (Was tempted but had nowhere to grow it at the time.)

  4. Definitely a more-is-more picture. The shades of tan are a nice touch.
