Though you dig at me, even beneath my roots, I persist.
This is a determined rosebush. The owner (who does not want the duty of tending to it) has had this rosebush dug up several times, even under the roots. Yet, it persists; it continues to regrow itself each time. This formidable little rosebush is a testament to perseverance and determination. Nature often finds a way of overcoming such odds—she is my goto metaphor for survival.
