In March our community was hit by a severe winter storm, wreaking havoc on the trees all over the county. Making a visit to Skinner's one day I took these shots of the damage and some of the flowers that managed to weather the storm. It made me cry, also brought me to realize that death often brings new life. Some of these flowers are actually weeds, I find them beautiful.

|this will likely be left now that the tree has been removed from the well traveled path.|
|In the middle of all the things that made me cry, here was this little garden with the beginnings of spring growing and starting to bloom.|
|This is the pile of chips from the trees in the area. there are many more to be added, this will be used in the county parks, and in the community garden.|
