A Rock Feels No Pain

In despero , obscurum ; In Diligo , Lux lucis. (In despair, darkness; In Love, Light). -Me

Contradictions

This poor flower was loving the sun and almost 50 degree weather yesterday, when I walked by it the first time.

Today, it was shivering under it’s snow blanket, struggling to stay upright as best it could.

Heavy, wet snow here in Salt Lake City, but sure good for the skiers. For the flowers? Not-so-much.

Hang in there little flower, spring is coming fast and the big, bad snowflakes wont squish you anymore.

    It got cold ass right here. I know how that flower feels. We got 70, then it dropped down to 42.

    You know, the way those flowers can stand up to the snow and cold weather it’s a wonder they’re called Pansies!
