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.

let's get chatting...
