The pasque flower or anemone patens is the state flower of South Dakota. As its latin name tells us, the flower spreads its seeds on the wind. A cherished symbol of spring, it often emerges through the snow to signal winter’s end.
I couldn’t resist one more ode to the beloved bulb garden. I even used these blooms to test out my new favorite app: LikeThat Garden. Just snap a good close-up of the flower with your phone and the app identifies it in seconds! So far, it’s batting 1000. And, it’s free!
No disrespect to the other gifts, but the best one that Zola got – hands down – is the ‘watch it grow’ bulb garden. It’s sitting in the middle of our dining room table and delighting us all as each fresh, delicate bloom emerges. Definitely the gift that keeps giving! Thanks, Layla 🙂
Since all I’ve posted lately are invitations to my art fairs, I thought I’d share a little something pretty for your Friday pleasure. It’s a new picture made from something I shot some time ago and it will be one of my first vintage-framed prints (available tomorrow).
