Pulsatilla vulgaris

I am afraid this is not a mountain or Alpine plant, but AGS do seem attached to Pulsatillas. I walked over to a local SSSI (in V.C.22) this morning and took this picture....definitely in the wild though protected by rabbit fencing...hence a long lens.

Pulsatilla vulgaris

By 12th May the last flowers were out. This is one of about 6 plants in a small area, said to have been reintroduced by conservationists.

The area is known for its ancient chalk downland and its junipers. Polygala calcarea flowers profusely

Not far away green-winged orchids were flowering on the same day
