Mother's Day present

This was my present to my mother on her day...

Small details

My 3-year-old niece found a lot of small flowers in the garden... some were too green or too small for me to notice, but... she liked them and made me take pictures of each and every one of them. Some were just milimeters wide! Hope you like them too!
They were just like small treasures that only a 3-year-old could see...

Mother's day findings

On Sunday 20 October 2008, it was mother's day in Argentina and a good day to look for new flowers at my mother's garden! My niece, Maite, insisted I took pictures of the different clover varieties.
I hope you like them!
Like this little clover with tiny yellow flowers..

Like this white clover...

... or this one with elegant flowers

... and this one too!
