|And they are all those things ;-)
Shot this about half a dozen times from different angles and with different lenses till I got something that showed the early spring flowering aspect of them.
I don't expect much from a flower shot in this kind of challenge, but I just couldn't make myself stay inside much at all this week. Spring was calling, loudly.
