Its beautiful here in the Spring of the year. That being said, its hard not to notice the survival tactics of all living things. It just doesn't come easy on top of this mountain where the terrain and temperatures are harsh. I have been trying to grow tomatoes for 15 years and yes I can grow green ones. Most things need longer than our scant two months. I accept this but never stop trying. I guess these pansies are my shining example today.
