The Chinese have this common theme called the Three Friends of Winter.  They are the pine, bamboo, and plum. Every year, as the cold days deepen into the winter season, many plants begin to wither but not these three friends.  I don’t see alot of plums and bamboo in this weatern hemisphere – but we have plenty of pines.  Actually we have A LOT of pines – many different types and all of them stays green in this winter wonderland (which, for now, is quite a warm winter – more water than snow)
