I came across this beautiful flower whilst working at an agricultural college teaching art to floristry students.  We talked about its exquisite beauty and the way it seemed delicate yet strong. 

During the painting I remembered these words from the poet e.e. cummings: "If your wish be to close me, I like this flower, will  close softly, gently folding in upon myself".  Hence the title for the painting.
