One of my favorite flowers.    Not too many are blooming right now, and I wanted to capture one before they're all gone this year.

I may be familiar with this flower but not the name, Kay. Is this one of those tiny flowers or is it fairly big? In other words, is this really a macro of a tiny flower! I want to go inside where it's blurry and see what IT looks like. But for now, the petals are so lovely. Great color!
Kay: My mom always called it a "Vinca" Ginnie. I believe it's also called the "Common Periwinkle", a small flower, and it is a groundcover plant. See it's description and another picture at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinca. As always, thank you for your comment!
Crisp detail and I like the up close and personal perspective. Good work!
Kay: Thank you for your comment, Martin!
