Small pleasures: pasque flowers

I wait for the pasque flower each year with baited breath. Will it come up again this spring?   Will it bloom?  And will our dog eat the flower before we get to enjoy it?  There’s a wonderful set of children’s books about Henry and his dog,  Mudge. In one of them,  Henry and Mudge admire a beautiful blue flower together and then…Mudge eats it.  It does look delicious,  doesn’t it?
