    • Thank you! Roses always make me smile. I love how beautiful and full of life the rose is even though it’s covered in snow.

      • You 100% right!
        The truly Gorgeous part to me is that the rose is so…alive, its not wilting or dying, even though its covered in snow

      • Exactly! The rose reminded me of another quote I really like by Camus and would have been an even better fit for the photo – “In the depths of winter, I finally realized that within me there lay an invincible summer.”

      • Awww thast such a pretty quote! I can see how well it fits with the photo!

      • Thank you! I hope it inspires others to see that no matter how difficult things may seem, we have more inner strength and beauty than we realize.

  3. Whenever I see a rose I will remember that now! ^-^
