The flowers are out, singing of spring, in fields and garden both. Here are some. Too early for dandelions still.
|In the fields - these are called Bellis here|

In response to Sarah Y's challenge, I thought I should know a little about what those things were. So I looked up the term and the style. If anybody else is not up to speed, here is a brief explanation:
Chibi is Japanese slang for "small person" from Chicchanabito. Usually it has the connotation of cute and child-like.
It is an idiom of the Anime movement and a style of Manga drawing.
The figures, boys and girls, are very reduced and formulaic. The figure size is either two heads, or two and a half heads, or three heads high, very condensed. The appendages are simplified, the eyes either huge or mere dots, and the mouth usually a line. The hair is a major feature. Some times animal features are added to the figures.
