Valentines, After All

I was wrong, I received many Valentines after all, today!


This macro is of tiny oxalis weeds (or wildflowers, whatever you want to see them as). I've been trying for a few days to capture the tiny yellow blooms of Oxalis that are coming forward in my front yard. It must be the time of year, the season, for the yellow variety. The pink variety I captured about 4 months ago in my rock garden. I found out that this wild plant is considered an invasive species. But I must say I thoroughly enjoy these tiny treasures. More information about oxalis is found through both links photos of the flowers.


This is one quarter of the St. Patrick's Day mosaic created to celebrate the day on March 17. The four images of the mosaic are all images of the shamrocks of the oxalis plant:
