This is from the photograph for the Virtual Sketchdate for this month. It's a rhododendron bud. We don't grow many of those here where I live and its a good thing. Right now it's snowing and has been all day. Temperatures dropped to several degrees below freezing, and anything that has budded is in mortal jeopardy. It's been a long, cold winter and this photograph is my only ray of hope.
