What a wild end to a beautiful flower! Though I think this part of the Pasque Flower is as ever bit intriguing as the flower in its full purple bloom. The Allen Centennial Garden on the  University of Wisconsin’s campus is astounding for the variety of botanicals it packs in a dense urban setting.

One of my favorite Madison spaces.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Those are truly beautiful in both phases!

  2. I like this phase much better than the blossom stage. Cool!
