This tree sits quietly by itself at the front of Carpenter Lake Nature Preserve. I've taken pictures of it before, but this time it just popped out at me when I got out of my truck. I had to take a few more pictures of this tree this time. I usually just glance at it and head for the hiking trail.
Then when I got home, as I glanced through my pictures, this one photo seemed to almost beg for me to show it to the whole world. Well, who am I to turn down such a passionate request? I'm sure you can guess what I did next, since the picture is right here in front of you.
I've done what you asked, tree. I hope others can hear your voice as well as I do. I guess not all things hibernate this time of year, because you belong to winter, and winter belongs to you. I'm glad you are so willing to share it in the best way with me this year.
And now I'm sharing winter with all of you. It's a good one this time.
