Study in White Flowers #WordlessWednesday

A blogger I like to read had the idea to photograph a flower at different points in its life.

What I decided to do was photograph my Japanese anemones (not the same flower in different stages, but part of the same clumps in different stages).

(Want more flowers?  Check me out Friday, October 15, for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.)


Shyly opening


Full bloom

Smiling for the camera

Aging but proud.

What's special about Japanese anemones?  Not too many perennials bloom in early fall where I live in New York State.  These will be gone with our first frost but, in the meantime, they are here for me (and you) to enjoy.


Joining Sandee for her #WordlessWednesday.


  1. Very good idea! It looks so delicate. O love it!
    Happy WW and a fine week!

  2. ...white gardens are classy.

  3. Smiling for the camera indeed. Most beautiful.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  4. I love it! I wonder if it would grow here...?

  5. Just gorgeous. Love your wonderful eye for nature.

  6. Those are so pretty. Enjoy them.

  7. They're very pretty. What do you mean, "These will be gone with our first frost"? You haven't had it yet? Not fair! Mine was Monday night, 27 degrees. I have a big mess to clean up.

  8. Your flowers are lovely. Here we are pleased to see that a certain weedy white flower has appeared in our yard---some kind of wild aster, I think

  9. I notice there a few mums and such up against people places that are in bloom.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  10. Wildflowers this time of year are lovely:)

  11. These are very pretty.

    Fabulous captures!
