Pulsatilla (Prairie Crocus)

For Jozien, for bringing the delightful news that the crocuses have reappeared.

For Faith, who gifted Jozien with some crocuses of her own.

For Cat, creator of the lovely and mysterious Cro-ku tradition.

And for Ursula, for whom life begins with the purple spots each spring.

Resilient and beautiful. We all need a little of that.

Beautiful!! This makes sense -- we call these anemones here or at least we did when I used to sell at a nursery. They are so beautiful:) Thank you, I want to go walking in the woods and see what spring blooms are out and about here :)

Reminds me of my pasque flowers in the front bed. Lovely, delicate and full of hope. Wonderful way you've captured them too.

I put you in a haiku today. Stop by and read.

Hi! I just popped over from Karen's blog (Keeping Secrets). I've never seen prairie crocuses before-- how beautiful! I love how fuzzy they appear, as if they were kissed by fairies.

You have a lovely blog! I'll definitely be back.

To flourish is to blossom; to begin a new life!

To the colourful, wonderful flower and life in you and the young wise one, Ursula: May you thrive; grow and BLOSSOM ON!

...*Shine-On* ;)

You all are like the crocuses, popping up unexpectedly with your cheering comments. :) Thank you!
