And here’s the whorl of leaves that encircles the midsection of an Anemone berlandieri flower stalkIf you say you see stylized flames shooting up, I won’t object.

  1. What a beautiful image! Since I’m so far behind, I’ll just start right here and work backwards – enjoying every bit of it. No flames for my floral Rorschach, though – I’ve been spending so much time around the birds I can’t see anything but coot and mudhen feet, with their long, funny toes!

    • Thanks for being the first to comment on it. Although I’d photographed anemone leaves before, I don’t remember them ever seeming like flames—and certainly not (to me) like birds’ feet. The perils to the imagination that living along the coast can pose.

    • And thank you, Bonnie. I do enjoy showing different aspects—literally and figuratively—of these plants.
