This delicate flower lives in very tough conditions.
Posted for Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge
I have always like these flowers, and been frustrated by trying to capture them in photos. The combination of the small size and how they like to grow in very moist, often dark spots means that they often come out blurry. Especially since I really try to stay on the paved or rock lined paths. I was surprised to learn from Wikipedia that they are in the primrose family.
