Believe it or not, this guy and his pals jumped right back up once the snow melted and are thriving outside the front door of my office building. I wouldn't have given you a nickel for that chances of that happening when I took this. Shows what I know.Violence Unsilenced

Those little guys are sturdy.

I watched the green grass emerge from the snow in NC on the Weather Channel the other morning. It was surreal. And now I know they weren't making it up.

This is one sad flower! I am so sick of the snow up here in New England - hope I pop back as well as this pansy did! Great shot.

Now that's hope and perseverance! Nice shot -- spring is coming.

That is wonderful.

I need to rething my long-held assumption that pansies are akin to wimpiness. I've obviously been mistaken.

Life can be remarkably defiant, often when we least expect it. I like that...it speaks to my soul. As does this shot.
