For me, these beautiful flowers always symbolise the end of winter and the start of spring.

A lovely capture Ian - but can't help thinking that the 'autumn tone' you applied to it suggests that maybe you don't quite agree with its offering? ;-)

@Ian Smith: .

....ahh, I do love sepia toned flower photos - even when it's spring!
