yes, indeed, trees make very good wind breakers

farmers in the flat lands of arkansas keep trees all along the fence lines in an effort to keep straight winds and tornadoes from doing ultimate damage to their crops

looks so cold
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do... farmers are smart that way!

It was a cold day. But warmed up shortly after, and the snow all melted away.

A fine, though cold, copse!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray! Not cold for long - it was all melted by the next day.

Lovely images but it makes me cold just looking at them
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Chris! Cools me off a bit - our temps were in the 70's today...

It is so lovely to see these winter images!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Philine! I do like winter... I missed it this year.
Lovely snow. Are those pines?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, sir... Ponderosa's

A delightful scene especially in the second image; you've captured the falling snow very well. I looks so very similar to the snow we had in New Forest National Park.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: thank you, Alan! I imagine it would - I love the way the world looks in a blanket in snow!

Yes, trees make very good natural wind breaks. They also can bend so do not suffer such damage as fences can in strong wind.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do, indeed. Mother Nature knew...
Lovely scenes
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Tom!
Lovely winter pictures E. I just wish we could have some proper spring here now!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Bill! Well... we're having the warm temps. Will not be a good year for wildflowers and flowering shrubs, here... not enough moisture.
A nice warm snow that sticks to the trees - pretty.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, indeed, Mary!
It's making me feel very cold looking at this snowy woodland, think I'll turn the heating up smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Or come on over to Flagstaff- it was in the 70's today!
they are beautiful wind breakers Elizabeth... we have quite a few of them here at home.....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are the best, aren't they!

I always love those tall trees. And with the snow that brings another dimension to it. Great pictures.
(No picture for the 11th of April?)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too, Astrid! Thank you so much, Astrid!
And thank you - my head's just not in the game, lately, eh? I mis-numbered my photo's.... fixed now (I think!) Thank you for alerting me to it!
Still snow, we now see only on the tops.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: This all melted within 24 hours, Claudio. It was a very fast moving storm, followed by a high front... where we've stayed ever since.

Beautiful winterscape images that work well in B&W!! I love the snow covered tree in the second photo.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Steven! I do love snow - we didn't get nearly enough of it this year.
