Pasque Flower

Every spring our family makes a trip to our mountains to visit a place we privately call: The Pasque Flower Meadow. There grows a flower which exists only in Slovakia. It is very rare and therefore protected by law. It´s Latin name is Pulsatilla subslavica. Wikipedia says that there are around 30 species of the genus Pulsatilla in the world. Well, this Slovak pasque flower became a part of spring tradition in our family.
And it was a nice trip and also our youngest one did it (with our little help). :)





Poniklec
Každú jar sa naša rodinka podujme na turistiku do blízkych kubrických lesov, na miesto ktorému súkromne hovoríme Poniklecová lúka. Rastie tu krásny a zákonom chránený kvietok poniklec prostredný (Pulsatilla subslavica). Už sa nám stalo, že sme ho niektorý rok nezastihli kvitnúť, ale tento sa to podarilo. Návšteva tohto krásneho miesta sa stala jarnou tradíciou v našej rodine.
