Anemone nemorosa “Robinsoniana”

IMG_6218 - Copy

This delicate little beauty is flowering in my front garden at the moment.   Every time I walk past this very special wood anemone I think of Robin and Edwina and their wonderful garden at Andrews Corner on the edge of Dartmoor.   When I visited this treasure trove of a garden, far too long ago, it was given to me as a parting gift.  Coincidently they are open today for the National Garden Scheme http://www.ngs.org.uk/gardens/find-a-garden/Garden.aspx?id=6137.  I am sure the mother plant is also flowering her beautiful little head off, along with all kinds of other gems.  It is just a little too far for me to travel to find out, but if you can, then I certainly would.  If you need any more persuading, there are cream teas too!

  1. Super nice gift! I like all of them in all colours just because they are among the first to flower in the spring 🙂
