Happy spring!

The first prairie crocus (Pulsatilla nuttalliana) sighting of the year is something I look forward to each year. We found this small clump atop the windswept Cranston Ridge here in Calgary this afternoon. To me, these little fuzzy guys always herald the official arrival of spring, no matter how many weeks after the actual date of the vernal equinox they appear.
