Still Here

No snow in my neighborhood overnight, but looks like New England will be getting a few more inches of snow today. Actually during winter, the Washington, DC area gets more ice than snow. Last February's record snowfall was a surprise to the region. In spite of the snow and freezing temperatures, area flowers, plants and trees soldiered on and bloomed on schedule, as seen in today's photograph taken near my apartment building last year. Through several inches of snow, this plant still grows and blooms, personifying the promise of winter's thaw and the arrival of spring's blossoms.
