When I was a kid I was oblivious to trees in the winter. There were no bright green leaves to attract my attention. But now that I am "mature" I have come to appreciate the beauty of trees in the winter too. They are beautiful even without benefit of colorful holiday decorations. Sometimes Mother Nature even lends a hand to dress them up in snow and ice. Photo top left taken at Looking Glass Falls (Transylvania County, North Carolina, Pisgah Forest). Photo top right taken of a Japanese Stewartia at Bullington Garden in Hendersonville, NC. Photo of large oak in the snow was taken at Bullington Garden in Hendersonvile, NC.
