Few flowers seem as eager to express themselves as the Japanese Anemone. This is their time and they seem to be craning their necks in order to not miss a thing!
This morning my husband said, "Come see what I made."
I amble into his studio thinking I'd see a painting---------- instead I'm greeted by a 6' high bouquet complete with backdrop!!!
Yes, Leroy can definitely arrange a flower or two. What a thrill to unexpectedly see such beauty. Lately, the anemones have just been falling over themselves, not to mention a few rosebushes- he thought why not harvest a few.
We have always loved Japanese Anemones since we first spotted them in Berkely gardens many years ago. We found they are easy to grow if not invasive. And if they're happy, they are impossible to get rid of. We wouldn't be without them though.
Thank you Leroy for inspiring a blog post!
