Bring me a rose

Last week I found an iced over rose when I was out walking after the ice storm. I miss roses in the wintertime. It made me think about how hard it is to find roses in winter, which then reminded me of a really old song: Bring me a Rose.┬áThat’s where I’m at right now. Wanting roses in wintertime…

Bring me a rose in the wintertime,
When they’re hard to find.
Bring me a rose in the wintertime,
I’ve got, roses on my mind.

For a rose is sweet,
Most anytime and yet.
Bring me a rose in the wintertime,
How easily we forget.

Covered in ice

We had a bit of an ice storm last night. Makes for treacherous driving, but it sure is beautiful. Despite the fact that I’m getting over an awful cold & cough, I had to go out in it to take pictures. After all, this is Oregon, and who knows how long the winter weather will last or if we’ll even get anymore snow or ice to take photos of. Which is a good and bad thing. Mostly, the snow stays up in the mountains, where it belongs, but occasionally we get some to enjoy briefly, too. Here are some of my favorite photos from my walk around the neighborhood.
