Pottering around the garden I notice that our purple Pasque Flowers are now in bloom. The red variety has also, like the tulips, been in flower for a few days and very attractive they are too. They opened around Easter Day and, bearing in mind that the word 'Pasque' like 'Paschal', refers to Easter, their flowering was almost spot on.
