Six Word Saturday: Detail and colour of Japanese anemone

I was trying to show the hairy stem and furry texture of the back of the petals of this flower…this doesn’t really show it, so the next step will be to try a macro, but these plants are quite leggy and out of reach, so it may not be possible.

  1. It looks a bit furry to me, Sue! (Might be my eyes though…)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. If they’re leggy you also need a still day! This one certainly gives a sense of texture, and what lovely colours.

  3. I also think it looks furry. I appear to have some of these in my garden, still in bud, so I shall examine them closely once they open. I do like these flowers.

      I had some at the house, and loved them, so pleased to see some were planted here….I must post an image of the front of the flower soon….

  4. I do have an imagination, Sue, so I’m fine with this view. I like the texture too. 🙂

  5. Gorgeous shot, Sue. I’m with Pete about the furriness. 🙂

  6. Oh, I can see what you mean. I look forward to the macro.
    Happy weekend Sue

  7. a beautiful composition and detail!

  8. I love them in white or pink, but I’ve always associated them with late summer and they seem to be flowering earlier every year!

  9. You can always pluck it for the macro purposes ;). I love its rear view, Sue. Beautiful against this soft background. I’m quite enjoying the colours in this composition.

Over to you...
