A crocus rescued from the persistent drizzle and given a pseudo-abstract treatment indoors.

My thanks to all who commented on Snowflakes.

I suspect 'pseudo - abstract' stands for the special Ronnie touchWink

and the result surpasses any string of pearl in beauty.
All those perfect drops twinkle and shine, sparkle and caress - one perfect flower.
Yes, I love it!!

This is the lucky one--- and yes, it has the super Ronnie touch---

I noticed some in my N. lawn while I was out trying to rake leaves this afternoon (too much wind)

Nice diagonal composition and subtle colour. The water droplets made to sparkle by the lighting from the left. All set off by the black background and matching border. There is nothing pseudo about this image, Ronnie.
Nice work.
