Pasque Flowers at Therfield

Pasque flowers (pulsatilla) are a rare wild flower which grow in profusion on a chalk outcrop beside Royston Heath Golf Course.  As their name implies they flower at Easter time and this year is one of the best shows in memory.  This afternoon, there was a strong breeze blowing as illustrated by the second shot and it is also fair to say that many of the flowers are now past their prime and bearing seed heads, but the final shot of a small part of the overall area shows just how profuse they are. Thank you to Ann Miles who guided me to them. For those interested, I took these shots with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 with a 60mm macro lens.
