Spring feels awfully far away right now. I miss this view of roses and greenery. I think I took it a bit for granted at the time when I took these photos last May. I can't wait for the rose bush to bloom again, although I am a bit worried that it has taken a beating with all the snow piled on top of it this winter. Snow, would you please melt! It's 16 degrees as I'm writing this, so there's not much chance of melting today, but it's sunny and bright out and I can tell the light is changing towards spring even though the temperatures are not.
