For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection...Romans 6:5

Soon winter will be gone..yeah!
And new life shall take its place.
We might plant a yellow begonia,
With smiles upon our face...

I decided to put something cheery up besides snow as it sounds like we are to have another cold blast of winter and snow according to the forecast..but it won't last forever and spring is just around the corner.

This is a photo that I cropped in half of a container of begonias that I shot a few days ago at a Home Depot Store and then turned it around to make a mirrored effect to complete the whole picture.... The Fritillary butterfly added to it was from our garden that I shot in 2006..I felt more cheerful after I saw the final results:)

I asked the lady in charge if I could shoot some pictures of the flowers and she was fine with it only after I told her I was a hobbyist photographer.
