Pulsatilla Vulgaris

 

Meet Pulsatilla Vulgaris (Pasque Flower) – one of many endangered species on the Earth and also  one of the loveliest spring flowers in the north.
These big blue purple anemones still grow wild dressed in their charming hairy petals  –  here at Åsa Burial Ground (Södermanland, Sweden)  by the tombstones dated all the way from the Viking Age.
