A Lenten Rose for Good Friday


This gorgeous stand of Lenten Roses can thank a mild winter in Boston for a relatively early, and beautifully bodacious, showing of blooms. They were almost hidden behind a brown patch of shrubs not yet daring to show their green finery this early in the season. I walked around to get some shots with the light behind the petals, as most people simply hurried by on Boylston Street.

On days like this, when guilt and religion and a man dying on the cross all run together in sickly confusion, we need a little balm of beauty. I give you the Lenten Rose.
