Mothers' Day/ My Town Shoot Out

The many colours of Pasque flowers (Pulsatilla vulgaris)

I can count on pasque flowers blooming in my gardens on Mothers' Day.

They are lovely, such wonderful colours. I like the furry undersides of the petals.

I've never seen these in any other colour but blue. They are rare here.

I'm not familiar with these though from reading wiki they may be what I have grown as anemone. Very pretty though here they would probably bloom in March.

Thank you - one of my favorite early wildflowers. I've never seen so many beautiful colors. Only purple and white grow wild in the mts of CO.

Beautiful mosaic, all shots look like paintings.

Very nice collage and the photos do have a painterly affect -- I wonder if there is some well-done subtle photoshopping here or amazing camera work. Either way works!

I love the flower collage. great colors. In Brasil we have Christmas cactus blooming..... and I don't believe it is a habit here to give flowers on Mother's day.... I sent my mother a cherry tree to plant in the back yard. I hope it blooms for her at least once.
