Black and White Anemone

Black and White Anemone “Wind Flower”

I woke up this morning to the most beautiful Anemone blooms or “wind flowers” from the root anemoi who were the Greek wind gods–a fitting description for these flowers that survived a surprisingly bitter Texas freeze and harsh winds. Last year, I found this photo of Floret’s drop-dead-gorgeous Black and White Anemones and decided I couldn’t resist buying a batch for my own garden. Today was the long-anticipated bloom day and I am seriously thrilled. These blooms are as stunning in person as they were online. The black center leans more toward a rich-velvety navy which gives the bloom a unique and exquisite presence. I foraged around my yard this morning hoping to find a few stems amongst the wreckage of winter that might help showcase these beauties. Here is my resulting Winter Wind Flower arrangement.
