Gotta love something like that. That's a poem in a picture.

Re: A Beauty

Thanks! Snow or not, the pasqueflower got a truly poetic aura in the folk lore of my old country, indeed, where it's called dream-grass and where it only grows in a few secret places. In the Northern Rockies it is so much more common, the magic charm kind of fades away :)

Ahhhh, so sweet!

Flower parcially covered by snow. Who would have thought that it would make a good photo. But, it has made a beautiful one instead.
Thanks GeopoochSobachka,
