Chinese Anemone

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 14 September 2009 in Plant & Nature.

September has turned out to be a very busy month for me. I haven't taken a photograph in two weeks! I have been posting less frequently than usual, and will continute to do so until life slows down.

I apologize for not getting to your fabulous photoblogs. :-(

In early fall, Longwood Gardens has many Chinese Anemone blooming. These were some I took two weeks ago. I have some at home, but they don't look quite good enough to photograph. I must not have them growing in the right place.

*****THANK YOU FOR VISITING ANITA'S PHOTOBLOG!*****

Vice colours, very well controlled composition and nice contrast between pink/purple blossoms and green background. Maybe a little bit more blurred background would help to pop out the flower more but it's good as it is. Good work!

So graceful and delicate.

I've noticed that many of my blogger friends have slowed down just a tad. It IS challenging to keep the momentum...I always enjoy your images and look forward to your posts. We all understand though when there is a lag in the posts. =)

Lovely colours! I have white snowdrop windflowers blooming third time this summer and they look a lot like those Chinese anemones. They are anemones too, so no wonder.
