Sunny bloom in winter,

Cheerfully confused and cold,

Bright against the odds.

We have had such a mild winter this year, which has been a welcome change of pace from what we normally experience.  This little dandelion bloom was confused by the mild temperatures and decided to open his sunny little face, just in time for  a frost!  Luckily, dandelions are hardy plants and having survived his chilly experience, I’m sure we will meet again this spring as he and his thousands of cousins decorate my lawn.  What if we could all be like this dandelion though?  To be able to not only enjoy the mild life, but more importantly to be dealt the hard frosts and survive them with our inherent beauty intact.
