And dances with the daffodils.

She is such a beauty.
The scrolled buds are such a lovely shape, to say nothing of the colour – like tiny Olympic torch holders, celebrating the winter games.
Yes, the red trimming enhances the shape very delicately. Your are right about the torches …. but I was thinking along the lines of flamenco
My gosh. I had no idea oxalis came in such fancy colors and designs. We have two native species that come in basic pink and basic yellow. I found that this species is native to South Africa, but it’s clearly adaptable!
Yes, here the pink and yellow kinds are weeds. There are also some rather glorious species with great leaf colour (and patterns) though.
Well those are just about the cutest things I’ve seen in a while! Great shots!
Thanks. They have a certain flair, don’t they?
They don’t look real. Amazing
🙂 Too perfect, yes?
That is something special.
Definitely! These were in a greenhouse, but they might do outside in the right position (if a bit later)
Wow, so pretty!
That really makes a statement. Wow!
Remarkable what a trimming can do, isn’t it?
