Pasque Flower

I have no idea what flower this is.

There are several plants of it in a garden near where I parked for the Tulip Festival.

The flowers are actually the purply colour, not blue.
PS Monday - Thank you to the people who identified this as a pasque flower.

It is called a pasque flower! I had some...a house ago, methinks. Anemone.

I have a passion for purple flowers!

Your flowers are Pulsatilla vulgaris, the common Pasque flower of the genus Ranuculaeeae.
They are very beautiful spring flowers.

How pretty! From a distance (the last shot), they look like tulips.
