If Dandelions Bloomed in January

You’re looking at nothing more than a simple, everyday (well, mostly in May and June if you live in Minnesota!) dandelion. This one made me stop and look it over, for some reason. Maybe it was because it stood out, so tall and proud.

While I love the vivid yellow of dandelions, I wanted to see something new. The transitional blues I found gave me a frozen feeling. Then I pondered, what if a dandelion could muster enough courage to bloom in the middle of a Minnesota winter? I know, not possible. But what if it could? Might it just turn out like this?
