I want to share the first sightings of spring in my neighbourhood. These aren’t dramatic and colorful flower photos, because that’s not the way spring appears in Calgary. The first photo shows a tiny tulip that was the first to emerge in my neighbour’s garden. The next two show pasque flowers, commonly known as Prairie Crocus. These are a close relative of Calgary’s official flower – red pasque flower – very similar but a reddish colour, and not quite as hardy, judging from my attempts to grow them in my garden. Here’s Calgary’s official flower – Pulsatilla vulgaris rubra, photo courtesy of Wikipedia.My flower photos were taken 2 days ago. This is my view of spring this morning. Calgary weather – love it or leave it!
