Honoring the Lovely Pasque


Wandering the foothills of the eastern Montana Rocky Mountains


we found these lovely Pasque wildflowers


heads raised to the glorious sun


thriving
and
luxuriating in Spring


a real treat, as I had never met them before
I felt quite enchanted by them

  11. Beautiful. I can see what you mean by "luxuriating in Spring". Now if Spring would just come back for us ... we're having a "winter-like storm" here, quite unusual.

  13. I'm glad you introduced us to them after having met them. They remind me a little bit of crocusses but look at that wonderful furry stem! Gorgeous Tammie.

    Lovely Pasque Flowers you been photographing.
