We might be in the bleak mid winter, but the frigid temps and days of rain yielded to sunshine and balmy breezes out of the south this weekend. At least temporarily. Though you had to look hard for it, there were signs of life amongst the browness. I took a long walk on Saturday down to the Panther Hollow Creek trail a couple miles from home. The rains had a steady stream flowing along the trail. Along the way back I spotted this tiny little flower trying to brighten up an otherwise barren looking spot. I don’t know what it is, but the flower was not a whole lot bigger than your thumbnail.
