Christmas at Kittila, Lapland, Finland. Kittilä is a municipality of Finland and a popular holiday resort. It is located in northern Finland north of the Arctic Circle within the area of the former Lappi province.
When I close my eyes, I can almost feel the snowflakes falling, melting on my face; their iciness warming my heart. Winter will always be a cherished season. I feel close to my Heavenly Father when I am surrounded by the silence of a snowfall.
I miss winters up north cross country skiing. One of the more beautiful things I've experienced is being deep in a forest, during a light snow, with snow already on the ground. The peace and quiet. My happy place.
This a picture of a cherry blossom in the snow. This links into my theme of 'green' because in this picture the cherry blossom flowers are exactly the same as they are in other seasons but the only thing different is that there is snow on the plant.
