Trees for Resa

Snow through the window

After raining for about an hour this afternoon, the rain suddenly changed to giant snowflakes that were coming down thick in the waning light. I ran out and got photos of the falling snow. In the process I got photos of three cottonwood trees I photograph quite often as conditions change. Resa, who has two blogs I follow, Art Gowns and Graffiti Lux Art & More, thinks Mia is lucky to have her own tree. I told Resa she can have a tree if she would like, so I’m putting up four possible candidates. The first three cottonwoods are on our property, and the fourth is by our cattle ramp. The cattle ramp is on our property but the cottonwood is not, and I don’t photograph that whole tree very often. However, it’s a cool looking cottonwood and is situated so it gets good backlighting in the morning and the afternoon. Plus it has a cattle ramp next to it. But Resa can decide if she like any of these trees or wants to look through previous posts to see if she can find a tree that calls to her. Below are a few links to previous posts that include photos of the first three trees:

    • Thanks, Lavinia. It was interesting how the snow and rain didn’t seem to mix. It just went from rain to giant snowflakes. We have about an inch of wet, heavy snow at the moment.

      • This day things happened the same way on both sides of the river! I was washing dishes, looking out at the rain, and then all at once beautiful, heavy, wet snow. We have about 4” up here now.
        I love all the tree pics, but especially the last one. We don’t get that kind of scene too often here, and it is fabulous.
        I’m lying here in bed, looking at another cottonwood on your land one fine autumn day several years ago. 🙂

      • Hi Susan. We have 3 or 4 inches Royal Camera Service morning. The bamboo is really laid down by the weight of the snow. I see clear skies to the west.

  1. OMG!!!! EEEEE!!!! So far my fave is the second pic, because it looks like music!! I’ll be back! I’m off to visit the other tree links.

  2. Okay, it’s the second tree. Love it. Wow, my own tree! I just posted Muisca today, so will reblog this in a couple of days. I know I can, because you have a reblog button.
    This is so cool. THANK YOU!!! Yay!! Thank you!

  3. Reblogged this on Graffiti Lux Art & More and commented:
    Timothy at “Off Center & Not Even” has given me a choice of trees. A tree is Nature’s Art! Remember the poem “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer? Anyway, I picked the second tree. It has an illustrious history! I am so honoured!
    Thank you, Timothy!
