A small patch of these delicate spring flowers Stellaria holostea grow in my garden - they are more commonly known as stitchwort or poor man’s buttonhole.

I photographed a single bloom against a brightly lit natural background. I was attracted to the wonderful delicacy of these tiny woodland flowers. The pure white star-shaped petals contrasted beautifully with the small orange anthers.
