Neighborhood Anemone in Bloom - 2018
Tis' the season for the arrival of these beautiful anemone flowers down the block from our house. Just about one year to the day, I shared a similar photo of these blooms that are in the front yard of a house a few doors down. Those of you who have been with me for a while will know that we had an anemone perennial at our old house in Elmhurst. And it came about because of a re-do of Nat's wedding bouquet.
Earlier this Summer, I shared a photo of the 'teardown haul' that I pulled out of Nat's Sister's yard before they started construction. In that pile of stuff was a perennial that shared some of the characteristics of the anemone plants - with leaves the same shape. I stuck that plant in the back of our yard and tended to it just a little bit. After some shock, it appears to have rebounded. And is growing foliage, but no blooms. I suppose we won't know until next year if we do, indeed, have anemones or if I rescued some weed that I unknowingly transplanted from one side of town to the other.
