Macro Monday #96

(click to enlarge to full size)

Japanese Anemone (Anemone hupehensis) is a wonderful flower for the late summer and will grow in sun or shade so a good addition to the woodland border. The leaves are semi-evergreen and deeply cut and bring interesting texture to a herbaceous border. I just love the contrasting coronet of intense yellow stamens against the deep mauve-pink petals.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I think they are. Although the small anemones also go by that name so somewhat confusing. I’m afraid the recent storms have blown all my windflowers to pieces!
