Snow's Geometry

After the storm it is amazing to see the pyramids and triangles of snow wherever one looks. It seems impossible that withered chive and bee balm stems are strong enough to hold little caps like pixie caps or that each and every group of pine needles would cling together to support their own white beanies.

Even more beautiful is the limning of the limbs and trunks by tracings of white clinging at all angles to the Earth's surface in defiance of gravity! The black bare bones of trees made individual by the definition of their outlines with snow--making dramatic and sometimes delicate traceries in a monochromatic world.
