When I was in college these flowers among many other small flowers stole my heart.

They never give a great show.

They are humble little plants.

They hide are under the bigger more showy plants in the shade.

And yet, every year just like they did so many years ago when they finally burst with these little pink blooms they stop me and invite me to bend down each day and enjoy them for the very short time they bloom.
