When I step out into the cold morning,
I've been noticing a heavy frost on the cars
and covering the ground.
My wildflowers finally died off.
I went to bed one night and they
were still green... got up the next day
and they were brown.
Everything we worked so hard planting
at springs beginning... gone.
Except for this lovely.
We planted forget-me-nots here,
but they never grew.
This lone petunia grew instead.
It refuses to die, in spite of heavy frost
and much colder temperatures.
Life's like that too. Some of the unexpected
surprises are the ones that are most beautiful.
