New Buds Of Hope

Photographer's Statement:

This cherry tree has been through a lot. Its new buds have survived windstorms, hail, and even snow. But each year it comes back bigger and stronger and with new hope. Each year I look forward to seeing the blossoms ripen into bright red cherries and am amazed about how nature thrives through the toughest of storms.
