I normally don't do flower pictures here on TE, but lately I've been looking forward to spring. In so doing I rembered this suprise I fould last year in my garden.
There had been this plant that came back year after year, but I had no idea what it was. I let it grow because it had nicely texured leaves and was better than most weeds. Then one day as I came in from work, I spotted a bright pink spot of color. Not having any idea what it might be, I wandered over and suprise, this beauty had appeard like a miracle. Having lived in this home for 25 yrs and never seeing this beauty before I was astounded.
I wonder if it will reappear next year.....

Very beautiful surprise. The colors are magnificent. This flower jumps out from the monitor, I like the blurred background and the details inside the flower. Spring will be here shortly.

This macro shot has excellent DOF and clarity! The flower looks similar to a Tiger Lily, except for the color. Tiger Lilies are orange.
