This blog is hopefully going to prompt me to keep better records of the goings on in my garden and home.

Anemone in bloom signals first sign of fall
Anemone tomentosa 'Robustissima"
Back in the summer of 1973 we were in Clatskanie visiting my then future in-laws for the weekend. I dug up these two Anemone's from the neighbors garden. When they bloom it is always the first sign that summer is slowing down and fall is catching up. They are real troopers in the Manors gardens as they have been transplanted and abused more then any plant on the grounds. They make great picked flowers as well.
