"The roses are sleeping"

This past weekend I ventured out to one of our urban lakes for a walk.  As I neared the part of the lake area that is a rose garden, I passed a young mother with her son as he was saying, "Look Mom, the roses are sleeping!"  And sure enough they were....tucked under their blankets of straw, plastic and snow.  I loved thinking about the roses resting until spring....happy in their beds.  Soon to awaken from their nap to bloom.
