Anemone, Anemone pavonina

According to myth, the anemone sprang from the tears of Aphrodite, making it particularly appropriate that her island is covered with these flowers all winter long. They appear in red, pink, purple and white varieties from December through March.

Pressed flowers. Fratsia, 1991.
