Wood Anemone

Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa) is a pretty amazing flower. This plant like many other creeping woodland flowers, it can store energy underground which means that it can grow leaves, roots and flowers all at the same time. Wood anemone flower in early spring, they take advantage of the lack of canopy cover from the trees and really just dominate the woodland floor. Then later in spring the bluebells take over from the wood Anemone and dominate.
It's weird how some pictures that you take are not the best, take the below picture of instance. It's a little blurred. The composition isn't great. But i still really like it. It just reminds me that at this time of the year (Late winter through Spring) it's such a special time and the whole reason i got into what i do.
