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.


Cherry Blossom

I love this time of year when the blossom is on the trees and the spring flowers are springing out of the ground.  This is my own edible cherry tree, a birthday pressie from my brother a couple of years ago. This year I am determined to get to the fruit before our resident blackbird family does.
