    Nice set of the Pasqueflowers Heather. Like the dof and light on that third shot. Are these in a garden area or wild area as they are a native prairie flower actually?
    (Glad to hear snow is gone, as I am moving up around Kirkland Lake area in a few weeks).
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    Wonderful images, indeed. I am not sure if I can believe the crocuses are out already in the Cochrane area? Frigg, it has not been warm enough. But lucky you for finding them. I suppose with the snow in the forecast you may have to go back and take images with them sticking out of the snow

    They are actually part of the Anemone family Matt, and are some of the first flowers out in spring.( aka, "Prairie Smoke").
    They do resemble a Crocus for sure though.
