So you are having snow, Larry
Larry Bliss: We had a little last week--it was mainly ice...
I LOVE birch trees, Larry, and always want to peel them...but restrain myself every time! So lovely with the snow....
Larry Bliss: If I were a birch, I wouldn't want to be peeled...

This is beautiful, birches have so much character, wonderful picture, love the snow with it.
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Astrid--they are wonderful trees...
Was t birch bark used for writing on at some stage Larry, or perhaps some other use?
Larry Bliss: I am not sure, but it seems logical that some folks would write on it. I bet an artist somewhere today is doing that...

The tracks in the snow, seem to be that of falling drops. One could say the birches are peeling and crying.
Larry Bliss: A poetic thought, Louis...

I like they waay they shed their bark. Mind you, I'm not sure if it;s good for the tree, though.
Larry Bliss: It happens naturally, so I assume it's okay for them to peel...

It would seem that they would not shed in the Winter months....
Larry Bliss: It would seem, but it looks like they are. We have had some warm stretches lately...

The peeling and the snow together. Fine catch.
