Monet Snow at Argenteuil
When I looked out of my window early this morning, I saw by the light of the full moon, that shone through two of my windows so brightly, I thought a new street lamp had been installed, that snow had fallen. Then I watched the sun rise. The sky along a line above the hills was yellow and, above that, brilliant turquoise. A light covering of snow lay on the black branches of the birches on the mill leat. One of the trees still has a scattering of golden leaves. What excellent trees birches are.
Three birch trees on the mill leat, Well Road, Moffat. Note that the centre one still has its leaves, which are green and gold at the time of writing (Dec 3 2012)
