When in a gift shop I find it difficult to pass up taking a shot or two the flowers available. I decided to emphasize the principal blossom and processed to that end. I post it to help us remember that summer will actually return one day!
Fine picture of a fine flower. Yes, we do need to remember that spring and summer will follow winter.

I wonder if we all did an Indian Rain Dance, but chanted for the summer, it might speed the sun up a bit!

Indeed, yes, these blooms offer such promise . . love the soft light here.

I saw this and it immediately made me think of my mom and her love of pinks. Nice way for me to start my day! Have a great weekend, Don.

I love the heat and the sun...but I think winter is the most beautiful season and better than summer...summer in Iran is always dry dry dry
a very nice flower and picture Don

I sure hope you're right about summer... well, not actually summer cuz I don't particularly like the heat, but I don't care much for the freezing cold, either! heheheee
Gerber Daisies are one of my favs & this one is sooo pretty! Great eye, Don!!! =)

You make me ache for spring. I am sitting here in the middle of a blizzard.

Only if it has grainy it looks more like an oil painting! Very excellent!

The surrounding bright petals help make the pastel bloom stand out to show its beauty.
