I've combined life and death for my flora and/or fauna entry.
I will probably enter this:

Flora and Fauna.

I had been hoping for some sunshine so the daisies would come out, and when I got back from the car club meeting the opportunity presented itself.

Was taking pictures of Snowdrops when I spotted a Bee on a single Snowdrop in the sunshine. I mean how special was it to see at this time of year sunshine?  :o

You people have green plants, flowers and insects in your gardens? I hate you! I still have 2 ft. of concrete like snow piled up in mine.
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

'Garden' is a gross exaggeration in my case Spinner - it's a largish area of mostly moss surrounded by what are currently lots of leafless oak trees. But there were a few daisies pushing their way through the moss, so that is better than 2 feet of snow, I'll agree. And it was 17C here yesterday afternoon  :legit:

Sure, as long as you have a jackhammer to break it up into snowball size bits.  :(

Oh, and I see from my local forecast it's going to get a covering of freezing rain, I'll bet that will be pretty.
Pretty darn hard to get around that is.  :doh:
