Pine Needles in the Snow



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I really don't appreciate cold weather, and it's cold when pine needles collect snow and ice. But even I will admit that pine needles can look pretty when decorated this way.

I like cold but unfortunately i live in hot weather country my whole life! Four season experience is a gift, the variety it brings to life experiences are great !

I am like you when it comes to snow and ice. I think it's pretty BUT I don't like all the work that follows. :)

I am not a cold weather person either. However, around here this year, we really have not had any really cold days. I am looking forward to seeing the flowers in bloom and not ice on trees.

Nice. I like how the snow glimmers and shines when light bounces off it.

I agree! So pretty.

Gorgeous picture! We are expecting Siberian cold here in Rome these days, and maybe even snow!!! It hardly ever rains in Rome. I lived in New York for many years and I couldn't believe how much it snowed! Elvis is my daughter's idol and her dream is to go to Tennessee to see Graceland. I am following you, it's so interesting to see pictures of Tennessee.

These are lovely ones! I always adored the pine bough motif in the winter, but I'm with you about not liking the cold!

Thank you SO MUCH for your well-wishes for my husband's cancer!

This is a marvelous shot. I don't like ice when it damages but I do like the formations on the needles.

I don't like feeling cold, but I like dressing warmly, and hot chocolate and fire places and even picking up my dog--because the little mutt is warm. Hey, these ice pics are wonderful!
