Snowdrop Anemone Getting Ready To Bloom

Last year, not too long after I moved to my new city, my friend Joy gave me some beautiful perennials for my garden, one of them being Anemone sylvestris; also known as Snowdrop Anemone.

Well, the other day, as I was snapping photos around the garden, I noticed that this lovely plant is getting ready to put on a show with its lovely blooms:

I am really looking forward to seeing these delicate flowers open; it won’t be long now.


  1. Isn't it thrilling in spring to see something new blooming or about to bloom almost every day? My clematis just put out its first flower---it made my day to see that!

    By the way, speaking of snowdrops, the Weather Network graphic in your sidebar showed a snowflake this morning. Did you actually have snow?

  2. We got snow this weekend, with another few inches expected this week. I'm jealous.

  3. Beth, I am thrilled every time I see a plant getting ready to bloom. My tulips are on their way. One of them should be open within the next couple of days. I am so excited!

    And yes, we did have some snow this morning, although it wasn't anything serious; mostly rain-snow, which (as Canadians) we say "Meh...no problem"

    Oh my goodness, Tatiana, are you serious? Wow, that is *painful*. Snow is not something I appreciate this time of year; I can do without it!

  4. Lovely collection of plants to add to your new gardens. Looking forward to seeing photos of the anemone in bloom.

  5. Hi Crafty Gardener, I am definitely going to take photos of these cuties. This time of year is my favourite; there is a renewal of life, and it's very exciting.
