The roses are loving the cold weather.
Their petals are lofty and piled as high as they can go.
I am remembering a favorite poem by Madeleine L'Engle...

This is the irrational season
When love blooms bright and wild
Had Mary been filled with reason
There'd have been no room for the child. 
--Madeleine L'Engle, "After Annunciation"
