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. Beautiful & bright for sure!

  2. I like your photos

  3. I like your collage of these lovely flowers.

  4. Beautiful mosaic - the colors are so cheerful. We have pasque flowers here in Montana, and I adore how they look when they go to seed - like something from a Dr. Seuss book. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  5. I love anemones! I planted some a few springs ago and they are finally coming up now. In winter. One at a time!
