Pasque flower


drove an hour north
nearly to Canada
to find 
some of the first spring flowers


in years past I drove over the Rocky Mountains
to be in their presence
(a longer, yet beautiful drive)



imagine the delight to see the Pasque flower
lightly scattered over the prairie like land


bathing in sunlight


 being pollinated by fury bees


rising from the earth
after a long winters sleep

the joy of flowers 
has touched the land

  5. They are lovely. I like how they seem to have 'fur' to protect them against the cold.

  6. Wonderful captures of this beautiful flower! I love the one of the furry bee hugging the pollen-filled stamen! He seems to be reveling in the sheer abundance!

    That's why Spring is my favourite season - it's a synonym of life, each and every day you discover the birth of nature in a burst of colours, tender scents and marvel...

  15. Ooohh... so delightful to see this bee on its side, "hugging" the haert of the flower!!
    We have similar hairy flowers in Europe, but they are found in the montains.
