Happy Winter Solace

No, it's not some hippy holiday I'm now celebrating. For some reason this year Olivia and I have been talking about the first day of winter and when it happens. And I've been watching each day out our backdoor a volunteer sunflower plant about to bloom. And have been amazed these two events happened simultaneously.

I'd like to be able to give credit to our wonderful California weather, but we've had our cold spell with freezing temperatures. I think this has more to do with some mutant strain of sunflower that can handle every and all temperatures.

Whatever the cause, it's enjoyable in quite a curious way.
