Purple Anemone Flower by Dry Leaf 9223

When I walked in the greenbelt north of Old Lampasas Trail in northwest Austin on March 15th I found a fair number of anemones (Anemone berlandieri) in a place where I’d found them equally numerous in the early spring of other years. The flowers of this species range in color from white, as you saw last month, to the rich purple shown in this specimen. The nicely contrasting background brown came from a large, dry leaf on the ground near the anemone.
