Pasque Flower/ Today's Flowers
Easily my favourite spring flowers (at least this week), pasque flowers bloom in my gardens the last week in April and through all of May. Each blossom measures between two to four inches across and can be pink, reddish, lavender or purple. I have pasque flowers in several spots around my yard.
Hmmm. How did that ant creep into my photo?
The clump to the back looks like it's one plant with many coloured flowers but, for sure, a few seeds must have landed in the one pot when they were sown. I purchased the clump three or four years ago as a tiny plant not knowing there were actually several in the pot until they flowered. Since pasque flowers resent being transplanted, I decided to let them stay that way. They seem to get along very well, don't they?
When the flowers fade, feathery seed heads appear, which are also very attractive.

I really like that flower.I wonder if it would grow here in Florida?
These are so pretty. I was just remarking for the millionth time that so many flower petals resemble fabrics. Or the other way around, really. These remind of me crinkly gauze. Beautiful.
I've never seen pasque flowers. Quite lovely. Yes, they do look like fabric.
Oh I love thar flower. We seem to have only the purple ones here, maybe a few pink ones. I do love the seed pods too. Your pictures are glorious. MB
More superb floral fotos! I've never seen such flowers in Florida...we have some similar but not the same.
These are beautiful!
Oh wow, those are exquisite!!! The colors are soft and delicate as are the flowers. Fantastic photos! Thank you for sharing them. Have a great week.
Beautiful close up! What a lovely surprise to find out about several flowers blooming like that. Have a great week :)
Those are beautiful photos of some beautiful flowers. I like the first shot where you can see the veins in the petals. Took me a while to see the ant, though!
Oh - love this flower! New to me I believe! The first shot is gorgeous! The petals looks like someone has tried to rip them apart - the little ant?? :)
You must have a lovely garden!
Oh I love these! I'm definitely going to have to get some of these for my garden. Even the foliage is pretty!
Your shots are great, this is new flower, to me. Wonderful.
I loved these pictures! Fantastic colour!
Many thanks for so beautiful post to bring joy to our lifes in this week!
Kind Regards from Brazil
Those are interesting flowers and great subject for photos, you did a wonderful job capturing these!
EG: What a wonderful show, this was not a flower which I knew.
A great flower, love the close up as it shows off its unique petals.
Happy Spring Smiles Barbara
I've never seen them in anything other than purple. They are such beautiful flowers. Their seed heads are equally gorgeous.
I've never seen this flower before. Lovely shots.
Your flower must have been so sweet, that ant has a very strong sense for sweets, LOL. Anyway, that pasque are like paintings. So beautiful.
Beautiful flowers known in my country as "Manisa tulips". "Manisa" is the name of a province in Western Anatolia close to the Aegean Sea. Pasque flowers live in the mountains of that region. But, as far as I know, these are poisonous flowers, aren't they?
Now that's a happy accident!
Stunning! The first photo took my breath away! Like a painting!
I am writing this down and will plant some...love the colors..my colors! Beautiful!!
Gorgeous...that first shot looks just like a painting! I love it...
Fantastic captures of a beautiful flower! The colors are just so pretty.
Have a happy weekend! :)
I am not familiar with that flower but it sure is a beauty in all colors! Stunning! I hope you will take a photo later on when it loses the petals so we can see the wonders it presents alone.

What a beautiful flower! And with a beautiful name as well!!
These are beautiful! Not a familiar flower to me.
That first shot looks like a painting....I think it would be wonderful framed!!
These are new to me but certainly brighten up an early spring garden.
awesome pasque flowers. i love the different colors such as burgundy, fuschia, light pink, white, purple. wow what a beautiful colors.
It's awesome. Love it.
i love the purple pasque flower, its sad cause its just one flower there. but i love it.
These are new to me as well; I want them! Gorgeous, gorgeous images.
Yes, pasque flowers are poisonous. Apparently they taste so bitter that it would be almost impossible to eat enough to cause serious harm though. ;-)
That top image almost looks like a painting, beautiful colours and textures. Great job.
I have to tell you; I found the same type of flower blooming in my neighbours garden today! I haven't seen them before! It was so fun - beacause I remembered your photos!
nicely done, they look like paper flowers
I think if I had them they would for sure be my favorite...I love that close-up.
Very pretty. You really do take wonderful photos. :-)
What a lovely blossom! I'm unfamiliar with this one and wonder if it might grow in So Cal ...
Hugs and blessings,
