Longwood Jan 2011: Poppy-Flowered Anemone

I have mentioned before how much I love Anemones. So I was totally over joyed to find a little patch of them, in several colors walking down the garden path at Longwood. Not all of them were at the peak of blooming, but I think that can be nice sometimes, a drooping petal can lead you into a different view of the flower.

I loved all these flowers that had two-tone petals and really dark centers.

This one was definitely on it's last legs, but even a dying flower can be beautiful.

You might notice that I have gone a bit more vibrant with these, I think it is just how anxious I am for spring to really be here.
