Farewell to Winter

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 4 April 2019 in Plant & Nature.

For some reason I have always been drawn to bare trees in winter. Especially trees standing by themselves. I saw this tree a couple of days ago and had to stop and take a picture since most of the trees are now starting to bloom. A sort of farewell until next winter.

"There are moments when time stands still. You hope it will wait for you."

Cette arbre isolé est parfaitement charpenté et le choix du noir et blanc un bon choix.

The tree has a neat structure. The leaves will hide it until next winter.
