close observation

There's a story about this tiny blossom and its out-of-focus cousin behind. While eating lunch on our side porch I noticed a little girl stooping to look at something in the dirt at the foot of our driveway. She squatted to look closely and said something excitedly to her mom. I thought whatever it was she saw had to be pretty unusual, like a dead baby bird maybe. When I'd finished my sandwich and strolled out to look, I found these two little flowers which had sprung up under our scraggly hedge.
