What can one say about these delicate-looking flowers that will accurately desribe how hard as nails tough they really are?
Is there an opposite of anthropomorphizing and is there a way to say that word without tripping over your tongue? If I had to decribe myself in plant terms, I'd be only half-hardy and even that might be a stretch. Tender is much more likely. I can barely make it through the winter with my eyes wide open and usually only start feeling like myself as the weather warms. And there's no doubt about it, I would never be blooming now.
