Snap Dragon

Not-so-wordy Wednesday: Snap Dragon

This feisty little flower in our backyard refuses to give in to winter.  What’s left of this snap dragon has withstood several cold nights and a couple of good rains so far without wilting or bending.

I like her spirit. I like looking out into the backyard from our family room and seeing her there, surrounded by the frosted ground. It’s like she’s looking winter dead in the face and giving it a raspberry.

Nee-ner, nee-ner, nee-ner, Old Man Winter.
