Anemones don't grow in this part of the country; at least, I've never seen one. However, I bought some cheap anemone bulbs in early spring and planted them when it started to warm up. I didn't have any expectations. One day, green foliage started working through the soil of the little wooden planter. Later in the summer, little white flowers began to show up, but most were hardly enough to be called a flower. One did look like an anemone, but that was it. Last week, however, a purple flower appeared, and it developed into a beautifully shaped anemone blossom. I played with my 50mm macro lens to see what aspects I could capture.
