A soft and dreamy image of a deep pink miniature rose beaded with winter dew…
One of the best things about living in the San Francisco Bay Area in zone 9b is having a garden that flourishes throughout the entire year. My yard grows lush with new vegetation and both continual and early “Spring” blooms in the months of December, January, and February. By March and April, it is the height of Spring; if I’m not diligent, my vines will sneak ever closer to the house, and begin twining up the sides and entangling their strong and nimble climbing supports into my window screens. One day of inattention, and my passionflowers begin peeping into my kitchen and living room.
While Winter roses lie dormant under snow in much of the country, this time of year brings a heavy flush of blooms to my miniature rose bush. I love to go out into my small garden first thing in the morning and capture images of dew or raindrop remnants on the petals and leaves of various plants. Crouching down low, peering at these little drops of magic through my macro lens gives me great joy.
