I always like crocus, especially purple and blue ones. They make splendid banners. Great job on this one, Elizabeth!

There are a number of species of Pulsatilla. This one is almost certainly Pulsatilla vulgaris, which comes in a narrow range of colors, from white to varying shades of pink, red, and purple. The generic page for it is Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla vulgaris)
