pasque flower

fuzzyflower0166Took a trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens to see what flowers were out – lots of tulips, but other things as well. The Pasque flower above is an early flower, it has fuzz hairs to keep it warm especially at higher altitudes. They were very abundant in the rock garden section of the gardens. I loved the way the green parts crisscrossed and the fuzziness added a softness to the above mandala.
