Winter here in Australia. And as in life, a tiny vibrant bloom in the midst of dull, dreary winter, can bring so much delight.
What attracted me to this flower, apart from its vivid colour, was that it could almost be mistaken for a butterfly. Well, it just takes a little imagination.
And gardens are places of such inspiration and imagination.
