Anemone nemorosa is an early-spring flowering plant in the Genus Anemone in the family Ranunculaceae. Common names include wood anemone, windflower, European thimbleweed and smell fox.

They are perennial herbaceous plants, growing in early spring from 5 to 15 cm tall. Plants start blooming soon after the foliage emerges from the ground, with the leaves parted into three segments and the flowers produced in the middle of the foliage on short stems above the foliage with one flower per stem. The plants grow from underground stems called rhizomes.

The plants die back down to the root-like rhizomes by mid summer (summer dormant). The rhizomes spread just below the soil surface, forming long spreading clumps that grow quickly, contributing to its rapid spread in woodland conditions, where they often carpet large areas.

The plant has poisonous chemicals that are toxic to animals including humans, but it has also been used as a medicine. All parts of the plant contain protoanemonin, which can cause severe skin and gastrointestinal irritation.


The workshop image shows a typical habitat for wood anemone.

Hello Pablo,
So spring has arrived with you as well now! It takes a lot to beat our white and blue anemones! Your capture of these white ones is very beautiful, the details sharp and colours natural.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Pablo. Your width of shots in the three sites is really good to see. Good clarity in this shot. Excellent notes. TFS. Murray.

Hi Pablo,
Excellent exposure, where white flowers glow brightly without over exposure and leaves still are clear enough. A very nice image.
I great idea to show a broader view of the place where they grow.

Hi Pablo

This is another splendid post from you, but with your permission, i will say that i love the WS picture :)
Not that this is bad or anything - in fact this is lovely, too - but i like so much the mood and colors from the other one.
The details are geat in both of them and the exopsure is spot-on.
Great focus and DOF and a nice note, too.

Bravo and TFS

Hi dear Pablo ,
nice shot with vivid colours.

Hi Pablo, beautiful composition with a lot of anemones, great sharpness and splendid colors, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

Hej pablo,
they are fantastic just the fact that the hole ground is longing for blooming and then they coming in mass (vitsipporna) before the the leaf roof have shadowed the ground.
Nice sharp picture

Hello Pablo,
Wow! This beautiful white carpet must be something very nice to see in real... I like your picture which is very well focused and exposed. Details are good on every single flower! This is a very nice specie with interesting notes. Thanks,

What a cheerful bunch of these sprightly white and yellow flowers against the dark BG of their leaves, Pablo!
A well composed shot in the natural daylight.
Thanks for sharing this heart-warming picture that conveys to me the pleasant sensation of coolness while I live through the scorching heat of the desert.

Hello Pablo
A beautiful composition and excellent shot to appreciate the shape, size and texture of these beautiful Anemones.
Interesting note too. TFS.

Hi Pablo,
This flower, which is characteristic in your country, is very beatiful.
You've captured the white flowers very good. It is quite difficult to get the right white tones, especialy when they are conrasting against the dark greens like here.
The white colours are not over exposed, details are still be seen.
Good work,
Regards, Ruud

Bonjour Pablo
C'est un merveilleux macro et les couleurs de ces fleurs sont très jolies ,les détails et la composition sont supers.

Merci et au revoir....JP

Hi Pablo, this makes for an interesting carpet. Nice shot of these flowers with good colour throughout. Judging from your note they are nice to look at, but not so nice to touch.

Thanks, John

Hi Pablo.
I hardly have not passed your charming picture. Your WS is great addition to original picture. It is exclusively lovely shot which presents all beauty of these plants and flowers perfectly. Amazing sunlight, vivid colours, excellent reproduction of white colour tones. I also like the arrangement of the flowers on the frame. Superb done and my kind regards.

Hola Pablo,
refrescante y bellas anémonas,
colores y compo excelentes.
buen foco,
saludos amigo

Very nice and crisp shot, Pablo. I am particularly taken by the combo of green and white. Lovely display of blooms!

I shall remember this image and your notes when I post this flower that I photgraphed on the 3rd.June this year in Jasper just before we left the park.
These are beautifully done; they look so similar to wild strawberry flower.
This is indeed a lovely photo.
Friendly regards,

Wow Pablo, we are still waiting for these flowers to show up in the woods here! T'is is a very bright shot! I like it a lot. The WS adds a nice overview. Excellent idea to include same. Tfs, J.
