Flowers: The Anemone

A couple of weeks ago, I picked up some bunches of anemone flowers at the St. Jacobs Market. They were just gorgeous, and they lasted just about a week. I think they would have lasted longer had I changed the water a bit more regularly.

A week later, Tim picked up some, too. Don’t they look pretty in his photo?

I love the curvy stems, and I love the stark contrast between the white petals and black (or is it very dark purple or dark navy?) centre. The anemone is such an interesting bloom, and I don’t see it too often, which makes me love it even more!

I think white anemones looks absolutely gorgeous on their own, but adding simple greenery around them also works beautifully.

This arrangement from Sullivan Owen is spectacular in my opinion. I adore the inclusion of the roses and seeded eucalyptus.

So, what do you think of the anemone flower? Is it a keeper in your eyes?

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen those flowers. They’re really stunning.
