Twin Birches 1

It is nice to have a warm 43F (6.1C) morning for a change and to make things even better I was greeted to a thunderstorm earlier this morning as well. Even though the storm didn't last very long it was still nice to watch and enjoy.

Down by the Snelgrove Brook in the last bottom field before forest starts there is a pair of large, twin birch trees.

About four years ago there had been a slightly smaller birch but the beavers came along and cut that one down to build their lodge.

I thought I would do a quick sketch of the trees with the brook and far shore behind them.

This drawing with spring colours would be nice, or perhaps in the future I could easily do them as a four seasons series.
