Anemone ( /ənɛˈməniː/), is a genus of about 120 species of flowering plants in the buttercup family Ranunculaceae in the north and south temperate zones. They are closely related to Pasque flowers (Pulsatilla) and Hepaticas (Hepatica); some botanists include both of these genera within Anemone. The name of the flower is from the Greek ἀνεμώνη (anemōnē) which means "daughter of the wind", from ánemos "wind" + feminine patronymic suffix -ōnē.

We have many anemones in our garden and take great pleasure from them as they bloom and announce the coming of Spring.

  1. Hello, love the pretty colors and flowers. Beautiful images. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  2. Beautiful anemones! Here they bloom in the Fall. This week I skipped ALL SEASONS because there's too much going on -and am at several place - knew I wouldn't be able to get back to everyone till the end of the week, so have a great week and "see" you back coming Sunday!

  3. So vibrant and colourful, such wonderful harbingers of Spring.
    Great to have you back with me again for MM.

  4. Nick, I love those vivid colors. Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Sylvia D.
