“Without a doubt the sense of beauty does not lie determined in the concreteness of an individual beautiful thing or person. Rather its purpose is much more the enchantment of the soul, for there is nothing physical that is not made with the intent of affecting the soul, and there is no soul that does not intend to dazzle everything physical with its sensations.”
A Lernet-Holenia, Mars in Aries

The little crocus flower was the first to top its head above the soil. i disliked cutting it, but the winds were high and the chance of photography was pretty much nil. I first laid the crocus in the window box amongst the Heuchera, and was pleased with the results. I later took the flower indoors and photographed it in a glass bowl.   Click on photo to enlarge.
