Explore Outdoors ~ Catching Snow Leaf by Leaf


Some leaves cling tight to their trees - even when all their friends have twirled and floated and wobbled earthward. Those left behind get tattered by the wind. Sometimes, those rips and tears create tiny shelves and pockets where snow collects. Sometimes leaves curl as they dry, forming funnels and cones that create safe havens to shelter snowflake gatherings.

Snow collects on twigs and branches, on abandoned bird nests and clotheslines and spiky flower heads. Where do you find snow collecting in your yard and neighborhood?

Ah, I wish we had some snow. I miss having a real winter. One of these days I'm going to move to a place that has four seasons.
