The Snowy Tree - Thursday Tree Love

When it is a cold day in upstate New York, the sky is so blue.

The ground is usually white.  Observe this photo, which was take on New Years Day.  The temperature that morning had hit zero F (-16.6C) but it was warmer by then.

The tree is in its winter sleep, unaware (or is it?) of the cold and snow around it. 

At the right time, it will awaken and put forth flowers and then leaf buds.  In the fall, the leaves will turn yellow and drop.

And the yearly cycle will begin today.

But for now - snow and cold and the long winter's sleep.

  1. I love snowy winter photos - it's the closest I get to seeing the actual thing (no snow where I live - EVER!)

  2. I bet you'll be even more confounded as I inform you that in slightly more than a fortnight, it will be the new year for trees!

  3. I live in SC and it's been freezing here as well. Only without the beautiful snow. I'd love to see 4 or 5 inches of it here!

  4. Pretty blue sky. I think it has something to do with the precipitation taking some of the pollutants out of the air. That's my theory, anyway.

  5. Beautiful tree in Winter.

  6. I am not that far from you only in New Jersey. Here the snow is melting. Lovely tree photo.

  7. A little sloppy here in NYC, too. But I'm enjoying this little warm spell. Back to freezing for the weekend!

    Gorgeous blue sky!

  8. Nice winter photo. Plants must have some level of awareness. Hmmm...

  9. The Circle of Life! I wonder if the trees go through some 'shock' as they shed every leaf every year... I can enjoy the NY winter from the warm city here!!

  10. Circle of life and that brilliant picture to go with the thought. Thank you for joining, Alana and showing us a picture from NY. Must be so cold there. Hard to imagine!

  11. So true. The circle of life continues.
