Very interesting flower, Anita. At first sight I though that the petals are white with something that looked like blue fringing but the more I watched it the more I was realizing that the actual colour of petals isn't white but very light blue. Nice photo - I like the colours and DOF.

@Tomas Turecek: Thank you, Tomas. These are not flashy flowers, and the color is a pale blue going to white. (When I clik on your link, I am not sent to your photoblog.)

This is one of my fav wildflowers. For it's diminutive size and tough color to capture accurately I think this is very nice.

Such delicate beauty. I just love the little spring flowers that bloom so briefly.
