Heralds of Spring

Pasque Flower (Anemone pulsatilla) have shown their lavender blooms at Perrot State Park just in time to mark spring. As the first heralds of spring, Pasque Flowers, also known as Easter Flower, are right on target this year.

They've been spotted on Perrot Ridge Trail. Rising just 6 to 8 inches off the ground their light lavender blooms open up on sunny days.

Don't fret the recent snow won't spoil these early risers as the silky hairs help insulate them. Just be sure to get out again on the next sunny day because this latest storm is sure to melt by next week.
