The Survivor

IMG_3532.JPG

It’s amazing how after a big snowfall some flowers manage to survive. This petunia is positively glowing after three days of freezing temperatures. I wonder how long it will last – the next week calls for more snow. This flower makes me think of my mother who has Alzheimer’s. Her nurses have been calling me  as she has been falling constantly. But my mother is remarkably cheerful after each fall. She once said that since her deportation to Siberia by the Russians during the war nothing upsets her. This petunia is a lot like my mother.
