FFF13 - DAUGHTER OF THE WIND

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.


Here is an Anemone coronaria succumbing to the wind.

  7. A beautiful anemone! We used to grow a variety of them when we had our house (and garden) in Oregon. And it is also the name of a sea-creature that we see in tidepools off the Oregon Coast. Thank you for doing the meme!!
