Snow on Pussy Willow

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 19 February 2012 in Plant & Nature.

We've had a mild winter and the pussy willows think it is spring. A light snow a week or so ago made possible this wintery image.

Love the plant and snow design here! Have y'all had a lot of snow?

@Barbara Kile: Our average to date snowfall would be 16 inches. This winter's to date snowfall has been 4 inches.

Anita - such a painterly feel to this one. I love how the snow and the soft gray of the pussy willow bud blend into one - the bridge between winter and spring. Great diagonal composition.
