Happy feeling!

I visited Northern Norway and Finland last week and had a talk to my wife with my mobile phone (she was not with me):
She asked whether I can shoot "a different" flower with my camera?

Looked down, and saw a very fresh dandelion.

Anyway, we still love each other...

The dandelion we have always with us, I guess.
