How beautiful!! I have been sorting through all my blossom photos from last year... I don't know if I can wait! The anemones are great, are those perennials? I wonder if they would grow where I am?

hope our little recycled green houses work!

Becky: yes, the anemones are perennials. They are called Anemones de Caen and Caen is in northern France, so I should think they would grow in colder climates. Here, the leaves begin to grow in the autumn and survive frosts, hail, rain and even occasional snow through the winter.

Love the Anemones, my growing zone is a little colder than yours and watching your flowers open brings Spring a little closer.

Thank you for posting them.

I love the blossom gradually open - a wonderful sequence.
