Since it's the dead of winter around here, I had to go to the conservatory to find the tiny stuff.

This bloom is about 1/4 the size of a dime.

Pete, if you click on the top one, you'll see in flickr the name of it. I found this answer last year. The second one, I thought was Goat's Beard however, thinking on that now, Goat's Beard are much larger, so perhaps your answer is best suited for this one.

Henbit and Bluets started blooming not long ago, finally got out in the cold and got some macros...

Henbit



Small white Bluet about 1/4 inch across



Larger lavender Bluet about 3/8 inch across..



photolady - Yep, Horse Herb is what I thought, I originally thought it was a yellow variety of Chickweed, due to the split petals, the main characteristic of Chickweed. Don't remember where I found out what it really is...I think the second one looks a lot like Dwarf Dandelion, but not sure, they grow all over the yard here, I'll probably have more shots this spring...usually about dime size but almost identical to a dandelion.

Nice image of witch-hazel, not closely related to hazelnut (filbert).

We have huge patches of henbit in our front yard - here's another image, although not as up close & personal as Billy's

Paul -- Henbit is all over our yard too, and everywhere else nearby. Cool to have flowers blooming in mid winter...I've found them covered in frost and still going strong. I'm not that far from you, going to Canton today actually, you shoud have Bluets blloming now too, and maybe some tiny Speedwell if you look close. I'm seeing a few Spring Beauties and Violets but they're too big for the tiny flowers thread...YOu have to really look for the Speedwell though, it's a bloom about the size of a pinhead, blue and hard to spot.

Looks like this one but smaller. I've found 3 sizes, this one is about 1/8 inch across, large one is 3/8 inch, smaller one is pinhead size. I found a couple yesterday but didn't pull out the macro rig.
