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

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.

Here you go. Coot feet

That’s a good picture: even an old coot like me can see the resemblance.

You draw us in and take us deeper!
And thank you, Bonnie. I do enjoy showing different aspects—literally and figuratively—of these plants.

This is one of those times where less is more.

This is a very interesting sculpture nature has provided. Nice shot!!!

Yes, and no marble or bronze needed.
