The Pasque flowers

The Pasque flower is a rare species that grows on the undisturbed chalk land on the ancient earth works called Devil's Dyke, which cuts through the Fenland landscape near my village.

Its appearance in mid April, inspired the use of the archiac word of pasque which meant Easter and its love of chalkland and appearance on ancient earth works and burial sites has fed the legend that the flowers grow from the blood of the ancient vikings.

These small, furry flowers, appeared through the low grasses on the edge of the dyke, basking in the sunshine and revealing their golden centres.  This time I lay on the path and took a long shot to catch them in their habitat, photographing through the foreground grass to soften the image.
