A selection of snaps from a novice shutterbug

Anemone

Anemones are simple plants but with very lovely flowers.  I’m working on my final assignment (about Ariadne) for my OU course at the moment.  It’s a bit hard going.    At one stage I thought about using Adonis as my subject.  In some versions of the Adonis myth, a red anemone springs up out of the ground following his death by wild boar.  The red anemones were past their prime when I went out with my camera, but I hope you like this this purpley-white one instead.

    Beautiful!! I moved my anemones a couple of years back, and they haven’t quite recovered from it. I’m hoping this year will be the comeback, but we’re a long ways away from blooming season yet.

    • Thanks Anna. I moved mine when they had finished flowering. Hopefully they’ll come back next year. Or the next…
