That looks like a very unusual crocus! It is a wonderful shot!

Beautiful delicate shadows. I really enjoyed the rest of the photos on your blog, also.

One thing I do know about the crocus is that it is very very low to the ground...You must have been lying flat on the ground to get this shot...what a beauty it is!

What a beautiful crocus, I don't have any at the Pink Chateau too much sand.

No flowers for us yet, all I see is 2 inch shoots of something I planted last fall, I just can't remember what...I think it might be daffodils?

Have a great week ahead...spring!!!
