Michigan flowers still hanging on yet

Today as our snowfall from yesterday was beginning to melt around the bed and breakfast, I noticed a patch of color peaking through the snow almost to say “I’m not giving up yet”.  A very hardy purple mum continued to show it’s color in spite of the colder temperatures and the snow-covered ground.  It’s almost hard to believe that any flowers could be so tough to still not have wilted after the cold and snow that came our way the past couple of days.
