"Winter" has come

Since yesterday afternoon the wind has started to blow so strongly here as if there were a thunderstorm approaching. I had to take all my hanging pots down to avoid them breaking.
The temperature was low this morning.

But these violas seem not to mind at all; they still look so pretty.

Alas, I guess winter has come.

Ah pansies. They are very hardy and will be among the first to bloom in spring, even when there is still snow on the ground. 57F? LOL It was 29F this morning here. Brrr. Lots of frost and ice on the birdbath again. But the annuals keep on trucking, even the impatiens up by the brick wall. I don't know how much more punishment they can handle before succumbing...

That's why I placed "Winter" in quotation marks. I knew with you people, it didn't mean real.
Pansies are lovely, aren't they? But don't know why they don't live as well as their sisters, the smaller-blooms violet.
Hope your winter won't be too harsh to handle.
We're experiencing flood in Central Vietnam these days.

Oh, I'm so sorry to learn of the flooding. Hope you and yours are safe. *hugs*

P.S. Yes I did get the "winter". LOL You might want to bundle up in a heavy coat just in case! ;-D
