Teeny Tiny - Macro Monday

Click the pic to enlarge

“I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star,
fragile as a flower, a tiny sliver of one hour.
I dropped it carelessly, Ah! I didn't know, I held opportunity

I adore forget-me-nots, and this capture is sheer perfection. They are absolutely beautiful with their muted coloration. LOvely macros this week. Sorry my thumbnail went in 3 times. Mr. Linky really played a mean old trick on me. He kept telling me I had an error and could not post it...but he fibbed and did it 3 times. Sorry about that. I am really embarrassed. Genie
