Ramblings and writings of a Central New York flower gardener.

My first Pasque flower. I bought it last spring and was excited to see it survive the winter. It brought much needed color to my garden early this spring. I can't wait for it to spread a little so I can divide it. While researching a little about this flower, I discovered another name for it is Easter Flower. Pasque being an old French word for Easter. Interesting little tidbit. Meanwhile, the hellibore I purchased at the same time last year did not bloom this year. I was very disappointed. It has some healthy new growth on it, but no flowers. Maybe next year.
I didn't notice the ants on this flower when I took the picture.
