Deep within the shade garden...

I nearly missed this bloom ,  Anemonopsis macrophylla, sitting deep in the shade garden .  I had to crawl under to get a look. It would be much happier in a cooler climate .  I keep it well watered and surrounded by cool foliage. It seems to take all spring and summer for it to bloom. They don't last long in this heat ! 
And while I was scrambling along I found this little clump of  Colchiums.


  1. I really love the Anemonopsis macrophylla - so delicate and unusual! And the Colchicums surely mean that cooler weather is not too far off :-)

    1. I think we are getting some cooler weather and maybe a bit of rain …yeah!
