I have countless pictures with flowers as a theme. All kinds, colors, shapes. While going through them I found this one, which I have chosen because it is special to me: it is from my mom's garden, pictured last december in the Southern hemisphere. I particularly like the contrast, the vivid pink, the deep green, the water drops... but I am biased, it is my mom's and I took the picture! Happy Saturday!
