  6. Happy Easter to you and Nigel, too, Alison! I love the pulsatilla flowers, just look at those colors. I wish I could capture their essence in glass, your photo would make a wonderful lamp.

  7. Those are really beautiful shots of Pulsatilla. I saw huge Pasque flowers blooming in the botanical garden in Prague at Easter-time in 2002. I have never been able to find any like them. My house sold & I am leaving my garden in a few days.

  8. How pretty! I love how they look with the gravel mulch. I've never had luck with them returning.

  10. Perfectly red. They are so lovely. The wonder of this flower is that it is useful to treat eye diseases like cataracts, which is opacity on the lens of the eye, which can cause partial or complete blindness.

  11. Every spring I say how much I like the Pasque flower, one day I will give one a try in my garden.

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
