Imperfect Perfection

Last weekend I bought myself an Anemone plant. It was already flowering with lots of buds so I was excited to get it into the ground. Since then it has rained a lot and when I went out to take photos of them yesterday, they were looking a bit battered. The ground beneath was strewn with petals and the flowers were flooded with raindrops. They weren’t perfect, but still beautiful.

Today they are a little less waterlogged, but still sporting pretty droplets

This one has escaped the worst of the rain as it’s only just opened …

And there are lots that look like this, promising more beauty to come. I like the ‘grown up’ flower in the background to this little baby one 🙂

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. I’ve grown Japanese anemones for years – they just keep on flowering until almost the end of November, so you’re guaranteed to have plenty of opportunities for photographs provided you don’t cut the plants as the stems keep growing and produce the new flower buds.
