Hello Ishi,
You have chosen a very lovely dessert plant to present to us today. What I find most interesting about this particular plant is the way the blooms seem to start forming at the base of the stem, just as it emerges out of the ground. The yellow blooms are so pretty and grow in very tight clusters.
Nicely composed image while showing excellent detail and perfect exposure. Well done!!
