Snowy birch at night

Took this picture after yesterday’s snow finally ended, shortly before turning in. Any photos I take at night with my phone are usually greenish and hard to make out. This one looked really striking though, and practically black and white because of the way light reflected off the snowy branches. Ah, poor trees. Just when they were starting to bud, along cane this!

    What can we learn from a late snowfall? Man plans; God laughs? Or maybe, nature is as nature is? We have been taught to writhe against nature, to overcome her, stay warm when she is trying to freeze us, stay cool when she is trying to broil us up in a sizzling heat of summer. We cut through her when she’s in the way, brush her aside when she is growing in a spot we want. But she continues to cycle through her seasons as if we are not even here. It’s kinda amazing!
