Small flowers in the garden – a series #4


These little stars are peppered all over the garden.  They form a dense mat in the lawn and and in any garden beds.  It can take some effort to weed them out. However they are also a pleasure to see sprinkled about, at times reminding me of the myriad of stars that are pinpoints in the night sky.
