I remembered a picture of this mountain flower, on the first book my future wife offered me for 1974 Christmas (A l'affut des bêtes libres by Guy Dhuit and Pierre Pellerin - Hatier - issued in 1970) when I discovered on about 100 m2 area lots of these flowers just growing on a calcarous land, near a lake, after 3 hours walk.
I don't know the english translation for this flower.
A wonderful photo showing a wonderful flower. I also have them in my garden. However they are still in buds and because of the cold here they will not bloom soon. The low point of view here provides a somehow portrait impression of this plant. Little heroes in early spring ...
Greetings from sunny but cold Westphalia! Stay healthy!
Pretty!!! Thank you for getting down to the ground level (nose in the grass?) to get this photo. Sharp and well balanced in colour and exposure.
I love it. No matter what the English name is, it is beauty.
A really fine close-up of this beautiful flower. I like the excellent sharpness, which brings up the hairs nicely. Pulsatilla is according to Wikipedia a genus, which contains 33 different species. Common English names are pasque flower, wind flower, prairie crocus, Easter flower, and meadow anemone. The Finnish name is "kylmänkukka", which means "a flower of coldness", obviously because it blooms early in the spring, when weather can still be cold.
L'angle de lumière que vous avez choisi fait briller ces poils fins, c'est splendide.
En cherchant la définition de Calcerous, j'ai trouvé un vignoble vantant ce sol: "Le mélange singulier de sol, d'eau, de soleil et d'air dans chaque vignoble crée des vins comme des flocons de neige Des individus formés dans le chaos des nuages d'orage. C'est pourquoi nous ici à Les calcaires célèbrent avant tout d'autres facteurs, notre place. "
