Spring is an incredible time of the year.
"Spring has returned.
Earth is like a child that knows poems."
Rainer Maria Rilke
Hello Jack, stunning colour, love how the petals seem to just cradle the yellow in the centre, one of my favourite flowers. Thanks for sharing this one Jack.

A fantastic close up with all the detail and saturated color I like! The rich colors seem to complement each other rather well. The fall off of focus works to emphasize the heart of your picture. Well done.
