Japanese anemones – before the decay

I was thinking it was time I posted a Still Life or two, then got distracted….

In the past, I have taken some images of Japanese anemones as they have decayed…. today I thought I would take some while the flowers were reasonably vital – with the intention that I could take more as they decayed.

We shall see.

Here are a couple of reasonably minimalist images:


  1. I shall watch this project with interest …. and hold you to it.

  2. I like them when they decay, but it’s nice to see them before too!

  3. They’re pretty and you’ll have fun doing it, Sue. 🤗💕

  4. They look stunning against the black background. Fingers crossed for elegant decay!

  5. Lovely shots, Sue. And here’s to some jolly decadence. Perhaps some gin in the vase will help!

  6. Love Japanese Anemones … not a plant we have had much success with in our garden until this year when it has gone rampant. Climate must be just right for it. 🙂
