I shot these struggling blossoms late in December. For the New Year maybe we could all think about lessening our impact on the earth. Small changes like taking public transportation or a bike to work, or being more concerned with recycling and composting, or turning a light out, can go a long way if everyone was to make a concerted effort. I dislike the term global warming because in a country like Canada it sounds pleasant. Global climate change is more accurate, some places might actually get colder. Hurricanes, floods and drought are some of the not so pleasant consequences.
