I have done some "hard work" myself the last weeks, no snow shuffling then, but masonry and stonebuilding. I have built a new step of big natural flat stones. Had to remove the old one (also stone) and rearrange the steps.

Stone work is heavy for sure! Will you be planting in the cracks of the stone?

I did plant in the previous step but dandelions, grasses, campanulas, yellow corydalis etc invaded it! Can't use anything valuable to compete with those ;D

Well apparently, Minnesota does have well colored Pulsatilla patens.  This is grown from wild seed (not by me) from Becker County in the northwest of the state.  And in a serendipitous conversation,  I spoke with someone who has actually seen them there, and she verifies that they are indeed purple.  According to Minnesota flora literature, the stage of leaf growth in relation to the flower blooming is also with in the species' parameters.

I can't decide which is the better fom - the coloured or the white - so I gladly go for both ;)
