…Becomes The Rose


Today’s guest photographer is my son, Marshall. (Applause).

This winter is shaping up to be a busy one for us – as far as snow is concerned. We’ve already had 2 or 3 snow episodes. 

Last week, after one of our minor snowfalls, Marshall glanced out the window and noticed this.  He grabbed his camera and braved the elements to take advantage of this photo op.

This picture reminds me of the Bette Midler song – you already know which one, don’t you? – The Rose.

Just remember in the winter,
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love,
In the spring, becomes the rose.”
