Helen, isn't that better than not covered by snow at this time of the year?Here the weather forecast says biting cold weather and strong wind the next week -  and I have no snow cover :'( :'(

Trond, am mostly concerned because we had an extremely wet autumn and early winter with quite a few freeze/thaws before we finally got snow cover.I wish I could send you some snow!

Gorgeous Pulsatilla pics everyone.

Panayoti,

That P. halleri pic is a stunner.  They're so perfect!!!

The Pulsatilla do OK in my garden, or at least used to.  I lost a lot due to our drought the last few years and the low levels of soil moisture even with watering.  With our decent rain this year it might be time to invest in a few again to try to establish them once more.  The flowers are so beautiful.

Cheers.Paul T.Canberra, Australia.Min winter temp -8 or -9°C. Max summer temp 40°C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.

Helen, sounds like you have the same amount of snow as I do...oh well, we'll have Pulsatilla months after some of the others...they will be distant memories for them but fresh ones for us!

I don`t think I`ve seen a Pulsatilla I didn`t like  ;DSo far I have a couple of vulgaris (in my only `spring`bed so far--poorly sited I realised in a spot that stays cold long, so I`ll probably be able to show flowers even after Todd and Helen melt out  ;D ) plus some seedlings and seeds...

The harbinger of spring on the Canadian prairies - Pulsatilla patens - is in glorious bloom!  Here are a few shots from my bike ride home Thursday along the Bow River through NW Calgary.

It's wonderful to have this bit of unbroken prairie, in the middle of the city, surrounded by residential streets!

I can't copy such scenes but I have decided to try to establish P patens at my cabin along with P vernalis. I had several seedlings growing, however almost all died of lack of water during the Easter holiday  :'( (I didn't loose any other plants though.)
