Image caption, Kari Smith: "I couldn't resist the temptation to send in this picture of my daughter, Roslin Claire. She is 18 months old, but was about seven months old in this picture. We were having a lovely day out in the summer sunshine at Grandma's house near in Iowa. I think that the picture shows the innocence and wonder of youth, and it quickly became one of our family's favourites. She loves being outside and I can't wait to show her the garden in bloom this year now that she is a bit older."

Image caption, Hassibi Mora: "Naveed was posing for me, he was expecting a very, very nice picture of him, but he never imagined that I was focusing in the flowers in front of him. When he saw the picture, he was a little bit disappointed at first but admitted that the flowers were really pretty."
