Basking in Pasque Flowers

On a hillside meadow amidst an oak woodland lives a small community of Pasque Flowers. Maybe they are wild crocus. I can’t identify them quite, in any of my Rocky Mountain or Plants of the Southwest books. There are slight deviations from each example. They come up just after domestic crocus, but before anything else, except a couple of dandelions, of course. I think they are called Easter flowers too, since they come up so early in spring.

They are hearty, and adversity brings out even more color as they venture above ground. Look at these sacred gems, holding drops of rain or melting snow!

Such treasures of inner beauty and wisdom, they reflect to the world.

I have watched how they handle rain, snow and the passage of time, with strength, elegance and generosity.

They are also nice, early food for the bees. This may be this flower’s first contact with a bee.

Can’t you just hear their spirits laughing, rolling around in there?

They are so in love with each other. A simple kindness and dependency shared between them.

Notice the pollen basket on this bee’s leg.  She will take it all back to her hive.

It is almost too full for her to fly home, but she doesn’t want to leave her beautiful friend, Pasque. She may travel as far as two miles to engage here, but well worth the trip! Bees actually taste through their legs.

Bees remind us to drink in the sweetness in our life, and to enjoy community. Also to diligently pursue our dreams. I am reminded to just BEe.

Are you taking the time to enjoy your activities and productivity, and to find your truth?

I am in love with these flowers! I kneel to their Divinity, bow to their beauty, delight in all their unique personalities and lie down on my belly, and laugh with them, as we wait for bees, beneath the clouds and sun. We are all in relationship. We are in Spirit’s embrace.

Pasque flowers gather in groups, stand alone or with one or two friends.

DSC_0367 - CopyA wound came up for me to heal last week. It was my inner 12 year old. I just let her be with the flowers, say what she needed to say, feel what she needed to feel and express what emotions needed to be expressed.

DSC_0341 - Copy - Copy

I just loved her through it for several days, and now she feels fine. The flowers helped immensely. You just never know when the inner children will bring something up that you thought was already complete. Oh well. I guess we aren’t done until we are.

They also have an ethereal nature at certain times of day.

DSC_0355 - Copy

My friends here, mirror my own field, and I feel my centers strengthen as I gaze upon their color.

If I feel anxious, where is this anxiety coming from? What fear lurks?  What do I need to soften it? What excites me and gives me passion?

DSC_0562 - Copy

Is my Heart open? When do I feel it constrict? When does it feel more expansive? When I am still, I can connect to the Christ Consciousness, and be one with Divine Love. My relationships open my heart, as does my attunement with Nature.

DSC_0324 - Copy

Am I communicating too much, too little or in balance? Do I feel open? Free to express? Can I speak from my heart?

DSC_0354 - Copy

Attention to intuition

Unity with all that is.

      • Oh, yes, I do understand! I have been relishing all the beauties in our yard. Planting fall bulbs is about the last thing I want to do at the end of a long garden season, but those little gems are the best gift when spring rolls around! Love, Laura

      • Yes! I love spring bulbs. We have trouble with gophers and squirrels eating them, but I have daffodils, tulips, crocus and Iris sprinkled throughout the woods. The nice thing about the Pasque flowers is they are wild, so they are totally naturalized to their hillside. We also have wild iris, which I love!
        I hope you have a wonderful garden this year!

  1. How beautiful! Such awe. I like your suggestion of “Flower Therapy” for the wounds that surface on my heart. Had one just today, as a tear rolled down my cheek after a conversation with my son. Nothing ‘wrong’, just time and change. I’m sure a friendship with a flower would be perfect therapy for that!

    • They are very understanding! I’m sorry you had tears today, although they can be very cleansing. Do you have flowers yet where you are. Is spring there? We had snow today, which is great. I love how strong the Pasque flowers are and also the daffodils. I keep thinking the snow will ruin them, but they keep coming up for more! Enjoy your flower therapy!

  5. aah, dear Mary….. i woke up to your beautiful words and exquisite photos, scrolling through this beautiful vision and inspiration on my phone. Now I take my time to read again and drink it all in on my laptop, during a break. The photos are beyond exquisite, stunning portrayals of nature’s beauty, matched only by your wise words. I too have been dallying with ‘inner somethings’ these last weeks, and my breakthrough came on the weekend. Roses inflitrate my office, i bought them last friday and a new vase to go with them, this morning a delicate scent filled my office when I arrived. Reading your post reminds me to thank the difficult memories that surfaced and remind my now self that now is not then. How this ancient wounds come up to haunt us…. and how wonderful the flower medicine helps. It reminds me of the flower medicine of Bach flowers…

    I love flowers and loved meeting this new flower through you. How beautiful she is , and i loved your description of the dance between the flowers and the bees. Before I go I want to recommend another of my favourite blogs, the very underestimated La Floralie. Here she is

      Isn’t it amazing that this stuff still comes up? Sounds like you have good tools to deal with the little inner ones. You do flower therapy too!! Your roses sound lovely. I’m glad you liked the Pasque flowers. I’m sad to see them go. But they will be back next spring. I am addicted to taking pictures. I may have taken 500 pictures of them. I just couldn’t stop, and they lasted 3 weeks! That’s the thing about digital. You can take as many as you want!
      I am glad you are feeling better. So nice to see you, as always. I will check out La Floralie. Thanks for the link.

      • Hey Mary!!!! so good to see you too.. even better medicine to read and view your wonderful post. I love flowers, especially roses, but a spot of Retail Therapy works wonders too! 🙂 ( i spent the weekend with my daughter indulging, was great!)…. incredible how this ancient stuff comes up indeed, even though we think we’re done and dusted with it – but each time – well hopefully lasts less of a time and we dont go through it all – though it is intense and difficult at the time.
        i hope you dont mind but i have saved some of your lovely pasque flower fotos and am about to print them and place them in my office space – we need some inspiration and some floral beauty. one of the things i love about china is i can afford to buy flowers, often, and have determined, after the roses, to buy fresh flowers each week for my office!
        and i agree about digital fotos!

        have i ever told you i have a friend who makes ‘medicine pictures’? she uses a special lens with a kaleidoscopic program combine with expert intitution to create these medicine photos which simply WORK!

        oh and i used to make flower remedies in my garden back in my pre-China days… gem remedies also. Have you read Garudas? amazing books on flowers and gem stone remedies..

        think ive exceeded my word limit here – feel free to post more of those 500 snaps of pasque flowers – they make excellent medicine!!!! 🙂

        lots of love to you Mary. 🙂

  7. Such a beauty! Wow, the pictures are amazing. And I love how you connect that with what is going on inside. Everything can become a metaphor for what we experience on the inside.

    I find that the universe points me constantly to this truth that the outside is a mirror of the inside and that in the end there is no difference between outside and inside because it is all happening in consciousness (or in awareness), therefore all of it (the psychological stuff as well as the 3d world) are inside of consciousness.

    “Are you taking the time to enjoy your activities and productivity, and to find your truth?”
    Thanks for that reminder today. I sometimes forget to find joy in the things I do. I am often too absorbed in just fulfilling my duties and obligations, and that can become joyless.

    I will remember to just be(e). That made me smile.

    Sweet in the moments, discover in recovery, here in this wonderland I stopped to play.
    New Flowers have touched us
    From her loving lens
    For hours we listened
    The sound of evolution
    Flowing forth from our Pure One’s Heart
    Bringing the breath of ages
    The Beauty is ever enticing
    Words within the pages
    Of love, and living, and sharing and giving
    Like doves on the wing, allowing us to sing
    along.
    The morning dew, the bee’s delight
    The petal’s flair, and maiden’s hair
    We’ve never seen this vision before
    It’s beauty opens a brand new door
    So glad am I for your blessings here
    To my heart, you’re so very dear!

    Blessings and Love

And I especially liked this: “A wound came up for me to heal last week. It was my inner 12 year old. I just let her be with the flowers, say what she needed to say, feel what she needed to feel and express what emotions needed to be expressed.” So often I say something like that to a friend and they look at me like I have goldfish falling out of my nose. It’s so nice to know there are wonderful, intuitive people who understand.

  16. Mary, this is such a deliciously gentle and peace-giving post – a wonderful meditation in itself. I can feel your sense of connectedness vicariously, and it is very special; you are privileged to experience it so. Your macro photographs are quite exceptional, technically and artistically, if I may say so. I just bought myself a camera and am still using it in ‘idiot mode’, so to speak, but one day I would be thrilled if I could take pictures as good as these. Could you tell me what camera/lens you used for these shots? Many thanks, Hariod.

    • Hey Hariod,
      That is so exciting you bought yourself a camera. Be careful, you will become as addicted as I. I just can’t stop clicking! Sometimes it takes me deeper into the moment, and sometimes it takes me out of the experience of just be-ing. I really love it, and I hope you do too. My camera is a Nikon D3300, and the lens I was using for the close ups is a macro 40mm. What camera did you get? If I might ask.
      Thanks for your comment, Hariod, and I can’t wait to see your pictures! 🙂

      • Hiya Mary! I was going to buy a D3300 myself, though the new ‘P’ kit lens was suddenly withdrawn, along with stocks of the body only, and the older kit lens was all that was available. That gave me some thinking space and I realised I really wanted a mirrorless camera anyway. I got a Lumix DMC-GX7 bundled with the kit lens, but will get a pancake 35mm in time, once I learn the camera’s system and something about photography. I was torn between the Lumix and a Fujifilm EX-1 with a fixed lens, but went for the Lumix to save a few pennies. They launched here 3 years ago at £800 and the remaining stocks are being cleared at £300 via a good retailer – and it came bundled with Photoshop Elements too. Much love, Hariod.

      • Ooooh! I was going to ask you if you had gotten a mirrorless! I am soooo jealous! I had a Lumix point and shoot for years. It was great, so I think you chose a great brand. I will be very interested to know how you like it. I would love to get a mirrorless camera. They weren’t a thing when I got my camera. They came out shortly after, or I became aware of them shortly after. I am too invested to change over now. I have the lens that came with it, the macro, a 200 mm zoom and a 500 mm zoom, so that’s kind of a lot. And you got such a great deal! AND Photoshop. I don’t have that. I think now, instead of buying the program you pay so much a year for it, so it is nice that you have it. I am so excited for you!!!

      I am so happy you liked this. Yeah, I thought she was mostly healed by now. Just out of the blue, something else came up. It was nice to do the love and healing surrounded by these beauties.
      Love and Light to you!

  27. Amazingly, they are still blooming! What hearty little delicate flowers.
    I am so happy to see you, Lorrie! I’m glad you came.
    Yes, when you least expect it. I thought I had worked through, processed and healed all that stuff. Haha. At least when remnants come up, all I have to do is love whatever part is hurting. Flowers help. 🙂
    Much love to you too, dear Lorrie. ❤

  28. Mary I just went back to review this post. Breathtaking is all I can say. When I lived in my house with my ex I planted 106 crocus bulbs. Every Spring the ground around my tree in the back yard looked like fresh snow from the deck. I loved sitting amidst the flowers under the tree. The bees are having such a wonderful time playing in the center of the flowers. Each photo is a precious gem as are you!!! Love and Light!

    • Thank you Sandy,
      What a kind and generous comment. I love crocus. I planted about a hundred of them over 3 years, and now only 4 or 5 come up. Squirrels mostly, I think. Plus, they just don’t get the water they need. The ones that are still here are really pretty. That’s why I love love the Pasque flowers so much. They are wild and grow all over this one small meadow, and they last a month, and even when they go to seed, the seed head is beautiful! Thanks for coming by. Love and Light to you!
