spring is showing up in my gardens

This is among the early blossoms on my perennials that are intermixed with the roses.  I can't remember the name of the flower but it is purple and looks like a daisy.

Spring has come earlier than usual this year to LA.  I suspect its the very warm January and wet February that prompted it all to come to life so early.  Now if we can get some serious rain in the Sierra's and end our long drought we will be in good shape.  

The image was post processed in the Orton style.  Enjoy.  The final merged layers were run through virtual photographer to remove the cyan cast from the parts in the shade and give it that old timey 'chrome film printed on cibachrome look.
