Story

Erigenia bulbosa is a daring little wildflower. It peeks out of the rocks as early as February sometimes in these parts. This winter has been harsh, bitter to both skin and soul. But E. bulbosa, the harbinger-of-spring, is undeterred. It'll find its way.

And if that little herb can challenge the elements, I figured the least I could do was make up a hardy little tune in its honor. And maybe I'll go outside and lean against the cold north wind.
