Flowers in January
I moved to DC from Minnesota on January 1st three years ago. My dad and I saw some purple and yellow pansies growing in a landscaped square on the edge of the sidewalk. Having just come from a landscape thickly blanketed with snow, we stood and stared and exclaimed over the flowers for quite some time. I now accept that I live in a climate where there are flowers in January. like these roses that I photographed today. It’s a little harder to accept that there isn’t yet snow.
