Pulsatilla - bud to seed




Pasque flower - Pulsatilla Vulgaris, April-June

Seeds are often as beautiful, or more beautiful, than flowers, as is the case with the Pulsatilla. Last year I only had one flower/seed-head, this year I had lots, waving softly in the breeze. The Honesty has been amazing this year too, with some of the clumps developing purple seed-heads, which have kept their colour even after 2 months. You can see a few are still the usual green colour at the back. See my garden in detail here.

How nice that you have pouted out the lovely seedheads of lunaria and pulsatilla. I have to cut back the former because it seeds too much,

Lovely photos. You are a talented photographer.

I especially like the seed heads of Clematis. They are as beautiful as the flowers, though very different.
