Pasqueflower (Pulsatilla vulgaris), a rare member of the buttercup family, is just coming into bloom. It still can be seen on a few sunny grasslands on thin soils in the Cotswolds, attracting visitors from far away, this time Chris Heath while he was back on holiday from his job in Zambia. Pasqueflower means Easter Flower but with Easter so early they took some finding, even on this well-known site on the steep banks of Barnsley Warren. In early summer the purple petals are replaced by attractive feathery seed heads.
