Fragile Winter Beauty
For the past six or seven weeks I have been meaning to bring my camera to church -- there is one tree in the courtyard that started flowering as soon as the weather turned chilly. It was covered in delicate, snowy blossoms tinged with pink, a spectacular display of beauty in a season traditionally brown (for those of us who live in regions barren of snow). Each week I would forget, and then assume that the flowers would be gone the next week. But each time I returned, the tree was still in flower. Yesterday I finally remembered my camera and, to my delight, the tree still retained many of its blossoms.
I hope its winter-time beauty blesses you as much as it blessed me!
