Winter Blooming

Lenten Roses in my back shade garden this week and the exquisitely perfumed winter jasmine.

"The courage of some small and apparently fragile flowers never ceases to amaze me. Here are we humans, red-nosed and blue-cheeked in the frost and the snow, looking dreadfully plan; but there are the little flowers coming up, as brave and gay as can be."--Vita Sackville-West

Couldn't have said it better myself.
