Winter Pictures while they last

Even the curled leaves of the Rhododendron add interest in winter.

The bare umbrella of the small tree creates shadows in the snow.

Plump evergreens nestled by the birch are striking against the snow.  The Blue Spruce in the background compliments the scene.
You might be right in assuming that birches are my favourite tree.  I love the startling whiteness of them, the shaggy bark and the fact that they have such a history of providing canoes to this land.
