This a picture of a cherry blossom in the snow. This links into my theme of 'green' because in this picture the cherry blossom flowers are exactly the same as they are in other seasons but the only thing different is that there is snow on the plant.
Cardinals - this is one of my favorite bird photos ever. I love that cardinals stay around to brighten winter days, tho I don't see snow like this during the winter. But when the trees are bare, cardinals decorate it beautifully!
This area truly is beautiful in the winter with the snow and Christmas lights. My mom used to take my sisters and me to Chicago each year at Christmas-time it was truly magical. I will forever remember Christmas-time in Chicago.
