The bottom of our backyard is a favourite place for the pups to romp. This morning, with snow flakes dancing from the sky, I joined them in their favourite spot.
It gave me time to take a look around. As branches were covered with a layer of snow I became more aware of intersecting lines and bent tree limbs all around.
Examining needle foliage came next. Clumped together they form dense, dark areas against the sky. Isolating a branch draws attention to their broom-like nature and focussing on one individual needle-foliage tip one is reminded of a fan skeleton.

Happy Tuesday! Stay warm and enjoy a special cuppa, Anna
