    FOTD: A Survivor!

    Yes ….it is just a dandelion. but look where it is growing…. in the gravel of a parking lot at the barn where my horse lives. This particular space was ground over by the snow plow time after time in the winter. This little dandelion did not survive over the winter but here it is…
