Pasque Flowers


Pasque flowers – The name comes from Passover, and from their to their connection with Easter. That fits well with the festival because they bloom in early Spring – even in Edinburgh.

They grow wild in the UK, which is hard to believe with more and more wild flowers becoming rare because of lack of habitat.

    What you call Daffodil in English, is called Påsk flower in Swedish … påsk, pasque, same thing … Pesach


    1. How interesting – and in English daffodils are the common name of flowers in the Narcissus family – with the origin in Greek mythology and narcissism. Curiouser and curiouser 🙂
