Defying the Frost

The defiant little viola

Winter is almost upon us, and most of my flowers have gracefully succumbed to the inevitable.

Not one little viola, though: It continues to bloom defiantly even as its comrades wilt.

Alas, this flower too must eventually meet its fate. But seldom has a battle against mortality been a prettier fight.
