Sculpting and Sniffling

Today the high temp is 50 F! The snow is almost all gone, although a little more is predicted for Sunday and Monday. But down by the creek, on the north side which is shaded even in summer and just plain dark for most of the day at this time of year, the trees are still wearing their ice jewels. If you click on this picture to enlarge it, you can see how the wind has sculpted the ice on each individual needle into an interesting shape. Some of the wind's sculptures are round, some are knife blade thin, some are wavy. I wonder if the wind has as much fun sculpting as I do when I'm making a painting?

I'm also wondering if the crazy up and down temperatures are responsible for this darn head cold I've been battling for 22 DAYS now. It's the worst head cold I've had in years, and it just won't go away! Grrrrr...


  1. Something wrong here. 6,000 feet up in the mountains and you get 50F. I'm in temperate, lowland Britain and getting high twenties during the day and low teens at night. Mad.

  2. Yep, it was only in the forties here today.

    Beautiful picture!

  3. JJ and Vicki, I hope the weather returns to normal for you very soon!

  4. A lovely picture. I do hope your cold gets better soon. You've had it a long time.

  5. Thank you, OC, for the get well wishes, glad you liked the picture!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
