addition to Katie's book 'Winter remembering spring'
I was inspired by huge and old blooming apple tree under our window. Our flat is on the fifth floor, so I see what's going on downstairs... And this man is actually my step-father, who is going to banya (Russian sauna) and crossing our backyard almost every weekend. He is a passionate banya lover and could not relax without it's special atmosphere (who'd been in Russian banya once would easily understand me).
The main idea was to show changing season's effect with snow on the branches at first and white flowers next. Changing... But positively :)
