It was a dark and gloomy day. I got up early and waited for the sun to peek from behind the clouds. It did for a moment, and went back to hiding. Storms have played all over the state for days. My rain gauge shows 1 5/8 inches, but the cold is the worst. I have worn a sweater most days, and sometimes even more. I felt these early blooms were cheerful, in a rose garden I worked in one summer. They liked my botanical education being prepared and put me on a shovel or push mower most of the summer. It was fun in the fall bringing home dozens of roses as we prepared them for winter. I also met a friend who starts his own hybrids from seed.
My favorite shot

I thought this was a statue until I turned my back and it started sneaking up on me
