Anemones

Anemone dance 7D_1826 _StaatsBecause of our cooler-than-normal weather, the usual flowering season for all of our plants has been delayed.  The other night I went over to the horticulture garden at the University of Minnesota, not knowing what if anything I would find blooming.  It was a cool, overcast evening with a slight breeze, and I was delighted to find these beautiful white anemones dancing as the wind blew through them.  Their slender stems seemed barely able to support the blossoms as they swayed back and forth, but their brightness was a wonderful contrast to the gray evening.  I have read of places where there are fields of anemones, and I can only imagine how delightful it would be to see an entire acre of dancing anemones!

    I enjoy the background to accent the flowers. We now have lots of color and finally warm weather.
