This beautiful blue anemone looks almost as if it could be in the sea, which is of course, another place you find anemones. I was surprised to learn that the sea anemones were named after the terrestrial flowering plant, rather than the other way round. Sea ones are predatory animals, while this lovely garden specimen is completely innocuous and just brings joy to all. These were photographed in the garden of a friend who has the greenest fingers of anyone I know. I hope her abilities in growing these beautiful flowers, combined with my bringing them to you here makes your day a little richer. Hugs to all, once again. A Flower a Day #267  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers I post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )

  1. Supposedly a member of the buttercup family of flowers, I think you can see the family resemblance. If the yellow buttercup can represent the ‘golden hour’, then I nominate this darling to represent the ‘blue hour’. Both emanate an aura of light and beauty and a certain innocence that attracts us to them. Thank you, Ellie, for another glorious portrait.
