The Pasqueflower of my garden - my birthdaygift for you, dear Petra! Indeed, it was a beautiful flower while still in full blossom. But then age added an ineffable touch, a beauty that seems to transcend the forms of this world. Have a wonderful day, my dear!
P.S. I took this shot right after a rain and as an exception i have uploaded it in full resolution (13 Megapixel). In that size you will be able to see the tiny drops of rain that the flower caught in its folds.
And some music for you, too - with no obvious connection to this picture, but beautiful and funny: Five(!) people playing a great song on ONE guitar simultanuously.
