Snow Scene



The snow we received last weekend was exceptional for this time of year in our area. With the cold temps that followed the snow stayed long enough to give us the first white Christmas in years.

I captured this image of my cherry tree just after the storm. In the spring it is always covered in white blossoms with bees buzzing merrily about but on this day its white cover was silent, locked in winters freezing embrace.
