A Beaded Gown

As I walked to the store Saturday morning, 
I caught sight of the crystalline raindrops 
decorating the tree in a neighbor's yard.
The tree did not appear bare so much 
as it seemed to be wearing 
a lacy gown encrusted with beads.
I thought maybe the trees on the block had 
a party during this Christmas season,
and this one had just gotten home.

Nice composition!

I was looking at leaves still on the branches today... but covered with snow.
