grass of parnassus

one of my favourite flowers, like a serene and beautiful buttercup of pure white,   translucent with a network of veins, it would inspire the perfect wedding dress .  so called after it was found on mount parnassus.  at the end of summer the blooming flowers used to be a sign to peasants to start reaping and hay-work, and in fact the plant’s Swedish name means ‘hay-work’.

now one of my flower cards
