 Purple  pasque flower  (Pulsatilla vulgaris)

The weather has warmed up enough for my pasque flowers to bloom.

Hi! Nice captures. These pasque flowers are a little bit different from the flowers in our country. We call them as an oldman plant,because after flower ends, we can see many beards like things in the plants. Thanks for sharing.

Pretty flowers! I wish it would warm up around here so we could see some flowers blooming. Although I did see some tulips blooming today.

Hannah said...

I used to have a white one, but the purple one is such a pretty color, and I don't think I've seen them in pink, very pretty!

I'm glad it is finally warming up for you and the flowers are popping out.
