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 🙂
