Wild Anemone, January 2013

Winter here in Israel means wildflowers, and one of the most prolific and best loved are the anemones, most often seen in a rich, vibrant shade of red.

How delicate ( a rose is a rose is a rose comes to mind, even if it is an anemone). Your framing reminds me of a window pane; perhaps a child is peering through to look at the blossom.

The beauty of a solitary red flower in a sea of green cannot be disputed. It stands as an ornament to wildflowers everywhere. It would be wonderful to see a few of these in a New England winter on our brown and/or snowy lawns. Alas it is not to be...

This is so lovely and such a welcome sight! We are still snowbound in Suffolk and longing for spring and flowers again. Feels a long way off.
