The poor tree in the front of our house just never gets a chance. It always gets warmer in the late winter, the trees starts budding, and then we get cold and ice. Just look at the beautiful red buds covered in a layer of ice. I feel bad for the tree, but it looks beautiful! It looks like branches that they try and recreate for holiday decorations. I just had to take some pictures! They don't even do justice to the beauty of it! I love winter!
