I tried to keep this week’s illo all about nature and flowers and stuff, as befitting the standard definition of perennial, but the events of this week in Norway prompted a more serious response. In fact I’ve been a little depressed all week because of it. So forgive the “loose” interpretation, but sometimes it seems human beings are bound and determined to self destructâ€”violent extremism rearing its ugly head as reliably as the weeds returning to my backyard every spring.

Amazing, powerful work well done.
I’m upset about events in Norway too. This image speaks to me. Nice job!
That’s a moving & beautiful commentary on the hatred & destruction that seems so sadly, yet inescapably, perennial.
Really touching and beautifully done!
A powerful illustration……Well done!
Wonderful, heartfelt image.
Nice work, a relief from all the “cutesy”crap and such on I.F. I wish more people would surprise me with their interpretations. Well done.
Very beautiful. So true… very difficult to comprehend such violence and hanger. Your illustration is very apropos.
