They may feel or look delicate, but it takes a strong will to withstand a winter storm.
If they could talk, they should say something like: “We’d like to see you spend your weekend out here, in the frigid ground, having ice, snow and blustery cold winds whip you around and around.” It’s not a walk in the park, people!”
Got to give those pansies some credit. They are tough!
But, as in life, not all who fight the brave battle, survive.
The cycle of life is anyone’s guess.
Rest in peace, fallen comrade. ❤
