Artist's Description

This tiny white bloom was one of several that appeared in my garden this year. Nestled among common blue flax, I almost did not see it. I was so surprised to see that the back side of the petals are green! Since I have no name for this unexpected little beauty, I chose niveus et viridis as the title which are the Latin words for white and green.
