Gorgeous. I love Anemones. The only cut flowers I buy. Wish I aged as gracefully

They are amazing. As for us ageing gracefully – I did think of putting in the sequence backwards. We’ll have to try that and end up babies again…

Love the two close-ups of the centres; the second is particularly bluetiful. You’re giving Charles a run for his money.

Though withholding water in the name of the photographer’s art is another matter 🙁

(At least I can breathe a sigh of relief – was initially afraid of a post about dying yews.)

Such vibrant colors set against the white. A real uplifter on a dreary day. I am always reminded when I see these that this was the flower we were give in my A level Botany, practical exam, to identify using the flora. I wonder if anyone uses them these days. Rather lie log tables. Maybe a thing of the past.

Lovely! And such gorgeous colours. I regularly do this with most flowers – especially tulips – but I would go beyond your finished photo. I like flowers with petals on sills….
There’s life in yours yet!

Hi Yewa – we were away on holiday. Bringing nearly decaying flowers home would have been a little too much, I bet even for you! Tulips do die well, I agree…
