Winter's Last Hurrah

Uploaded: March 25, 2015 | Entered: March 25, 2015 15:59:31


This was photographed outside our driveway in mid-February 2011. But it looks almost exactly like this now, as the last major snowfall in the Philadelphia area is almost a memory. The ash trees don't drop their leaves until Spring's new growth pushes them out. Although they are dead, they look orange in the glow of the sun.

Lovely work Michelle. I didn't know that about ash trees; it must be nice to still have some color during the winter. #11271731
