A Rose in the Wintertime

Carolyn McDade wrote a great song, Come Sing a Song With Me, that lifts me with its rhythm and its chorus: “And I’ll bring you hope when hope is hard to find, and I’ll bring a song of love and a rose in the wintertime.”

Roses in wintertime are important -- actually any kind of flower can perk up the bleak midwinter -- and my spirits.

It has long been my tradition to buy a bloom or two (more if I’m having company) once a week beginning in January.

In case you need some perking up, here are some roses for you.
