A tough little flower...

Yesterday we had our first flower bloom.   It is just a little guy barely 3 inches tall.

This morning it was 25 degrees and on inch of snow.

I was sure that it had frozen.

I went out at noon when the sun was out and smiling happily there he was along with a few friends.
