Quite simply glorious, Melvyn. I find myself thinking I must fetch a saucer of milk for the "kittens"  ;)

And as for the pinks - well , breathtaking!

Beautiful.
For a while i kept looking at the pics and i wanted to say it's Pulsatilla.
Then I googled and realized it goes by both names.  :D
Some of my creations :)

it's definitely Pulsatilla 8). i know that plant systematic sometimes places the genus to Anemone or treat it as a subgenus of Anemone but Pulsatilla is distinct from Anemone by the form of the stylus (Pulsatilla = stylus strongly elongate and plumose (see foto), Anemone = stylus not elongate (see foto).

melvyn indicates the location in northern greece. i guess it's the greek part of the rhodopes, so the plant (and the thread ;)) should be labelled as Pulsatilla halleri ssp. rhodopaea.

wonderful fotos malvyn :D, especially the rose coloured...is it possible to get seed later that year? ::) ;D ;) 8)

Have only just noticed this, I have always  known it as Pulsatilla but posted it on a Greek website and was advised that it is now Anemone, thinking they are likely to know the nomenclature relating to their plants I later posted it as Anemone....still thinking that I have a preference for Pulsatillaa     A fabulous plant  and a rose by any other name and all that.....

There is a taxonomic explanation about Pulsatilla and Anemone in Flora Gallica : separating Pulsatilla (and Hepatica) from Anemone need, from a phyllogenetic point of view, the separation of other subgenus like Anemoloides (nemorosa, apennina, ranunculoides...), Homalocarpus (narcissiflora).... Pulsatilla and Hepatica are now subgenus of Anemone.
