Thanks. It's a beautiful little flower - only about 3cm across. Ah ECL I would not have made such a good job of the pattersn. I leave that to mother nature!

Great shot! I guess flower is the subject for the week.

Yo, Jams :D I don't think I've ever seen one of those before. It's so perfect, it looks fake! Although I'm sure it is real. Beautiful, thanks for sharing that.

Hi Jams, this is a really pretty flower. Do you have a lot of them? I hope so.

Happy WW! Since some were asking about my Subaru cars, I left this comment on my blog:
"Have to confess why I like these cars.
I like odd cars, especially tiny pickups. There were only 70 of these brought in to the U.S. These types of little pickups are running around all over the Mediterranian area. They are a regular work horse. Then too the roads over there aren't up to the speeds we drive around here so they fit in better with the traffic.

We found the other one outside our window while eating at Burger King. These girls and their dog had just left the drive through and were getting the food ready. The dog had a hamburger, that is why I like this one, I like clever dogs in action."

Sorry I have some much space in your comments.

Great flower. I love both the color and contrast, and the symmetry as well.

jmb said...

I went on a garden tour (7 in all) this past weekend and I was blown away by the hardy geraniums blooming their little hearts out. One of the most perfect plants in my opinion, with lovely foliage to boot.

It's hard to believe the flower is as small as you say. It's very beautiful. The pattern reminds me of leaded glass.
