Winter Rose

Originally uploaded by mikemull
I have six rose bushes in front of my house. They are all trimmed back for the winter, but with the recent cycle of rain and sun, they are reviving. In the last couple of days, a single white rose bloomed on one of the bushes.

White roses have a variety of symbolic associations, but i think this single rose in the midst of the thorns is an interesting omen for the beginning of the year.
