Now I KNOW it's spring!

I was amazed to find this yesterday when Courtney and I were wandering around outside! All by itself, in the middle of nowhere. Look closely! You can click it to enlarge.

Yep, it's really a dandelion, looking kind of unreal there, with barely any green for it to come from. When I showed it to Courtney's daddy, he even touched it to see if it was really attached.

Here's a closer look. You can click this one to enlarge it, too.

See any green dandelion plant there? Hardly.

But this means it's GOTTA be spring now! And it was 50° out, but it sure didn't feel like it with the wind we had yesterday.

Snow's melting!

Nah, it doesn't mean anything other than how nastily persistent dandelions are! :) There's still a HUGE snowbank in those evergreens. And remember... it's Minnesota! ;)

If a few more spring up you can make some wine.

More than "a few" will spring up, Becky... guaranteed! Unfortunately.
