The romantic atmosphere of a quickly approaching Valentine’s Day next month has me looking at sweet things like flower arrangements and red and white décor. To be honest, I am on a floral kick right now… I even started a new board on Pinterest a few days ago to indulge my fancy. So this week I am kicking off a new series: Friday Florals. In each post, I’ll do a feature on a different type of flower, their uses and a little about them.
This week, the focus is on Anemones. In Greek, the word Anemone means “Daughter of the Wind” giving this bloom the nickname of “windflower.”
Anemones have seen a surge in use for bridal bouquets in recent years.
Their petals are beautifully contrasted by their distinct centers.
Personally, I am thinking about doing an arrangement with a few “real touch” anemones in the very near future for my home. Possibly something for my new desktop? Or a casual cluster on the dining table?
