DAY 131 (14 AUGUST) – Japanese anemone (Anemone hupehensis) (Farnham)
It was one of those drippy days again. But although the sky was grimly grey, my camera seemed to find enough light to paint an image that didn’t seem possible to the naked eye.
The Japanese anemone is one of my favourite flowers. Tall, delicate and understated. These rain-soaked petals remind me of a ballerina’s skirt during one of those tippy-toed traverses of the stage. Gorgeous.
