  "I was drawn to this picture because the scene reminds me of our home in Canada after a heavy snowfall. The branches of our blue spruce and yews are bent almost to the ground, under the burden of the snow. I love the texture of the white paint and the way Pissarro applied it generously over the dark green of the branches. The whole scene seems almost encased in snow."
