Hanging In There (013/365)

“Lord save us all from old age and broken health and a hope tree that has lost the faculty of putting out blossoms.”

Mark Twain. Letter to Joe Goodman. April 1891.

TIME:  4:06 PM
PLACE:  Front flower bed

Despite the cold and snow that we’ve had around here, this flower was still attached to the rose bush when I went outside this afternoon to get the mail.  Although the blossom is past it’s prime, it still provides a nice little spot of color in an otherwise drab and dreary winter landscape.
