I loved the fact that these pretty little flowers didn't seem to care that they were growing up the unforgiving stones of a building and had to peek out from behind a water pipe to see the sun.

I like this a lot, Mitch. Very nice effects--the buzz on the building blocks and, I think, pipe but not on the fresh little daisies is very nice. Great colors and vertical composition, too.

Thanks, Dave, Steve, Colette, Kitty, Michelle, and Nikki. That little bit of summer surely looks pretty good about now, doesn't it? Ah, I guess we'll survive the rest of February and March.

Erika, Pat, and Sandi--thank you, thank you. I don't often photograph flowers, but when I do, I'm always drawn to them as a whole, and often not as closeups of parts of them, which I see much more often, so I'm especially pleased that others find these sometimes interesting as well.
