I'll take one in every colour!


Once again my blogging life has become sporadic, I seem to be very busy at the moment mainly catching up with jobs I have been putting off for far too long.  Outside my windows the sky has been grey for days, I am not a fan of this time of year but I know Spring which is my favourite season is waiting just round the corner.  To brighten things up  I bought some Anemones from the local Sunday market,  Anemones are one of my favourite flowers and here they sell them in mixed bunches of vibrant colours, their jewel like presence in the house is a tonic for my soul...

  4. I used to grow them in the border between the front door and the gates...I loved the colours and the way the stems would bend as if making up their minds which way to grow.

  6. The flowers silently say so much. Beautiful. I too have been unexpectedly absent from the blogsphere..........life has a way of throwing us unexpected challenges and time wasters that demand our attention. Warm wishes

  7. Hello Dash

    Your bouquet is beautiful. I love this flower. I planted them at our farm and they bloomed profusely. I have to admit I have trouble pronouncing anemome....and stutter on this word, then happily found out that windflower was their nick name. Their range of colours is just spectacular. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Lovely post and thank you for a peek into the rainbow. Came across your blog and from the description we may be neighbors! We are renovating a very old farmhouse that has been in my husbands family for many generations. It is a long, slow but steady renovation.
