Freezing...


...weather should not be too conducive to the blooming of new flowers.  This morning on KUNC, National Public Radio from Greeley, a commentator was talking about how researchers at Colorado State University have developed some Pansy's as well as other varieties that can be planted in the fall and then will bloom each year in September and October after the first hard freeze.  As I am on my daily twelve mile trek I always keep an eye out for some bloom I have never seen before and lo and behold this morning I encountered a tiny yellow flower.  It was no larger than the nail on my little finger.  It was tiny and it did not look like it would mature past it's current state.  Nice what you can find when you just keep your eyes open.  Sometimes the very best things are small and nearly hidden unless you pay attention.
