#343 of 365 for Sunday December 9, 2012

My picture below in Saturdays post was taken while the sky was heavy with snow and still snowing.  My photo for today shows how beautiful it is when the sun comes out, the sky turns blue and contrasts with the pretty white snow!

I think this tree is a crab apple tree.  It flowers the most brilliant pink flowers in the spring.  You can click here if you want to see what it looks like in mid April.  If you follow my blog regularly this tree gets featured often in my Pine River posts.  It is along the walking trail by the river.  As you can see by the picture someone clears the trail so people can still walk on it.  The river you see will freeze over soon and the breeze coming off of it is freezing cold.  I drove the car over and just walked across the lawn to it...... no walking trail for me when it is this cold :)


  1. I can see why you favor this tree in your pictures - it is perfectly located and beautiful in stature. Great winter shot.
