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 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.
Winter barn in Sweden--oh yeah the "Tomten" have been here! anyone read that book when you were a kid? He was a little elf that went from the house to the barn to check on all the animals, in the quiet of night, trudging through the snow!
