    The pink against all that green is a promise of what is to come.Very quietly beautiful.

  • Thank you, Bette! It was indeed a quiet moment. I was all alone in the ranunculus garden that morning.

    This is beautiful. Subtle and gorgeous, Celeste. I bet they look wonderful when they are all in bloom, too!

    That’s so lovely, Celeste, and you have captured the sense of that little bud about to burst with color and beauty. The detail on those tightly closed-up pink petals is just gorgeous and assure your audience that even more is yet to come…as we wait in anticipation….! Beautiful, Celeste!

  • Thanks very much, Katherine! Yes indeed, much beauty to come after this!
