Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I love this view from above; great detail, particularly in the veining of the petals. A nice purple and gold color combination, as well.

So do these early blooms of spring crocuses mean an earlier demise for the summer flowers, or will they last as long as Chicago's summer flowers? :-)
