I am unsure of your dedication, BC, but this image is a delight. It is so sparse, so astringent.

It would be nice to think it's a tree that can be replanted. They used, once, to come in pots to plant in the garden after Christmas. Sadly now they are chopped at the base and die. This tree seems to be floating on ice. beautiful.

If you're referring to that collection of sticks stuck in what appears to be a snowy rotunda, we have some of those, too. Not stuck in snow, but "sticky" - looking things. The problem here is our unusually cold weather...but the planters must have orders 'cause they plant perfectly good trees that are not yet able to sustain themselves against the northern onslaughts we've experienced in recent weeks and they soon become "sticks" bereft of all signs of life. Ugh.

It's a process that's repeated annually, which proves the saying that "Some people never learn."

The shape of the tree is almost perfect.

I have been away and am just now able to catch up with your recent posts. Today's tree is a perfect shape, and hopefully no on will walk up to it and think that it would look better with aluminum tinsel all over it.

To answer your question today on my site, yes, the cattle in our part of Costa Rica are raised primarily for beef. There is a ranching tradition dating back to Spanish colonial times.

I like the shadows, they play tricks with your eyes. (Or maybe I need new glasses!)

It's a lovely tree waiting patiently, dressed lights and snow.

I don't get it. That's not particularly unusual, though.
