In my garden. Like the light on the repeating patterns of the little flowers and the colors here. For whatever reason (age?) my hyacinths don't turn into stereotypical hyacinth shapes anymore. But I like the open look of them better so that's fine with me. I have tons of daffodils and my Star Magnolia looks gorgeous this year, but this shot said "March" more clearly to me because of the darkness of it with the one bright focussed flower subtly signifying winter's end.

PP - converted from RAW, rotated, cropped, increased saturation, slight hue shift to purple, dodged focal flower, colored/blurred bright water drop, added border, resized, sharpened with noise reduction.
