Before we moved to Texas (and after we lived in Georgia), we spent 3 years in Erie, Pennsylvania. Google "snowiest cities in the U.S." and you'll find Erie tops the chart 9 years out of 10. GOOD TIMES (not).
What was good? Spring and Fall. It's pretty amazing what Mother Nature kicks out once the sun starts to shine (and when she's singing her last hurrah). These 4 nature images were all photographed in Erie: Beautiful dogwood blossoms, forsythia, and a glorious autumn tree. I've edited them to match perfectly in a set for the nursery, bathroom, bedroom, or anywhere you might need a pop of color.
