After I got home, I went out and photographed the trees on our property that have been claimed. Robin’s Tree Tiffany’s Tree? I don’t remember if Tiffany claimed this tree or not.

Great photos! I love the last one with the snow covered lounge chair.
Thanks, Julie. Those are our star gazing lounge chairs. We can see stars through all the snow.
The snow and trees are beautiful! We had our first snow on the 14th, a thin covering which did not last long.
Hi Lavinia. This is our first snow of the year. About 2 inches.
Hi, Tim. Thanks for all the trees in snow. What was most amazing to me was the bamboo in the snow… I had no idea that was how it would look… 🙂
Hi Susan. The bamboo with bend down almost flat under heavier snow.
I love these type of winter shot where the trees have shed the skin of their leaves and the beauty of their skeletal shape remains. Beautifully done.
Thanks, Mobius. Skeletal trees in the snow are really beautiful.
Beautiful photos, Tim! Snow is fun and relaxing if you can just watch, and don’t have to go out in it too much.
Hi Leah. Luckily it wasn’t sticking on the roads when I came home.
First snow is always the best!
And it’s really best if it’s the last snow. I like snow to stay in the mountains. Thanks, Nancy.
I hear ya! I had enough of it when growing up in Pennsylvania and Ohio!
Winter trees are always so beautiful with snow on the branches!
It still amazes me how you get such clarity in these snow shots, Tim. Marvellous.
Not that I’m jealous of course (Fib detected!) Hahaha!
Having a large sensor in the camera helps. Thanks, Inchcock.
Ah, fair enough.
Each tree has a stand and personality of their own. I often wonder about the probability that trees are much wiser and more enlightened than us. If only we could hear them speak, it would be something inspiring, I suspect.
You have to listen carefully. They have a lot of tales to tell. Thanks, Dot.
BTW, Dot. Would you like to claim a tree?
Yes, I would. Thanks for asking. The bamboos are nice, humble and tenderhearted, I would like to bow back to them and ask for the permission to claim them as my friends.
Hi Dot. The bamboo stand is yours. The bamboo is Black Bamboo. It was very expensive when we bought a pot of it back in 2004. The nursery staff told us to plant it in the shade. We planted it in the shade of two large crabapple trees. The bamboo thrived under the trees. The trees were old and dying, so I took them out in 2009. Once the bamboo was exposed to full sun, it went wild. The stand is now large enough that I cut a maze inside it. It’s very invasive, but easy to control. The cats love to walk the maze and lie on the chairs we have in the maze. One can sit in the chairs in the middle of the bamboo stand and ponder life, the universe and black bamboo. Blue kitten would love it.
Thanks Tim. I am now a proud owner of such an impressive bamboo stand, how wonderful, Blue would love it as well! In Chinese culture, bamboo represents a life evergreen – its uncluttered interior implies an egoless quality; its low-bending yet never-breaking posture indicates a humble yet confident manner; the joints between its culms suggest faith and earnest. So Chinese people consider having bamboo thriving in your backyard a sign very auspicious – would definitely bring you good health and longevity 🐬
Hi Dot. I’m happy we have the bamboo so you could claim it. It’s amazing how it will bend so low covered with snow and then spring back upright after the snow melts or I knock it off.
Wonderful pictures !
Very beautiful trees under the snow. I love winter and its snow pleasure ❤. A soon Timothy.
Thanks, Angelilie. Trees in snow are especially beautiful.
YES! That tree is mine!! Thank you for sharing these lovely photos, we don’t get to see snow unless we travel about an hour East, so beautiful, and cold!
Thanks, Tiffany. How far do you have to travel to Ski?
Big Bear is the closest and that’s at least 3 hours, but since I don’t ski, I am happy with our little bit of dustings in our local mountains!
That’s not too bad. You could go surfing in the morning and ski in the afternoon.
Hope it melts quickly for you and stays far away from us!
It may be headed your way. The sun just came back out a few minutes ago. Thanks Teri.
It came, left a bit, and went but left a ton of frigid!!!
It’s still cold out here.
Currently 16 here!
At least it’s above freezing here, just barely, and raining.
I always feel sorry for all the amputrees that get hacked all their lives in the vicinity of power lines. True stoics. Resa’s tree resists with amazing wild twists and turns.
Hi Bill. Cottonwoods grow quickly and are brittle, so they break in the wind, then they bend and gnarl as they grow in different directions after they the loss of limbs.
Thanks, Tim. I had not known that about the Cottonwood but will now be seeking them out for those bends and gnarls. 🙂
Wow, it looks so beautiful.
A little snow does look pretty on trees. Beautiful shots, Tim. I love the double tree you named for Resa. Stay safe and warm. Hugs.
Thanks, Teagan. Do you want to claim a tree? The young cottonwood on the property is up for grabs and there are three other big, old cottonwoods on the property, but they are bit obscure. Then there is a bosque full of trees.
You and Laurie have such a beautiful place there. So… what does claiming a tree involve? 🙂
I’ll post photos of good prospective trees and you can choose what suites you.
LOL, I always expect things to be more difficult and more complicated. I’d be honored to claim a tree. One of the old ones… because I’m big, old, and obscure! I love big old trees.
PS: I meant to add you can take your pick.
Too late. I already photographed a set of trees and posted them for you. If you don’t like any of those, I’ll post more choices from the bosque tomorrow.
Sorry. I didn’t see a comments box. Wow they are all stunning. Such a difficult choice! Blue spruce has always seemed magical to me. Maybe because I rarely saw them as a child (Georgia being packed with white pines and cedars). I also love gnarly trees… Okay — I claim that pair of superbly gnarly old trees. That photo speaks to me. I even like the shed and the pickup truck. That photo begins a story in my head. Hugs!
Great choice, Teagan. Those Cottonwoods will be so happy. They often feel left out and a bit lonely stuck behind the shed while the other trees get all the photographic attention. Whenever you need photos of the trees let me know.
My tree looks amazing dressed in snow. That’s got to be in an episode… something when PBH is far far away! You could send these!
Thanks, Resa. I get it to you shorly.
A very beautiful series. I have not seen snow for real so far this year, only frost.
Thanks, Susan. We’ve had more snow in that last couple of years. We had several years with no snow before that.
They all look beautiful.
Magic! Love those trees Tim … 👏
