As we have been having an unseasonably warm December, the snowlessness of northeast Ohio has left little to inspire camera and me.

However, indoors, something very lovely occurred on this cloudy day to bring forth the lens and flash.

If you have read my companion article at a priceless thing, you will know that we donned our rose-colored robes yesterday for this third week of Advent. We rejoice because we know He is near.

This summer, a dear friend who was moving gave me her Christmas cactus. Yesterday, it held forth a voluptuous, rose-colored bud. This morning, I awoke to a full bloom.


Gaudete, indeed.
