I have no idea why I've not planted Anemones before now - well apart from the fact that I didn't have anywhere to plant them but this year sorted out a new flower bed which is now a rather random collection of flowers.

Anyway thanks to my being out most of the day I just plucked this rather nice specimen from the garden, shone a light on it, gave it a bit of lucisart whyeth - just on the flower - curves tweak again and that was it.

Thanks folks - and thanks Pete for the HC Smile

I've a mum/baby shoot tomorrow so who knows, maybe I'll produce something half decent. If not then I might see if I can fit in a self portrait or two while all the paper etc. is down. After all I've a new top hat to play with - if I can figure out what to put with it!

Failing that I'll raid the garden again .......

Beautiful and so simple. Not so simple to achieve though!

Thanks again folks - and thank you Angi for your award Smile

The petals have dropped back now so I'm going to take a few more pics of it before they start falling off. I need a break from studio blitzing anyway - I've so many props that they're spread out all over the place - most of them are now on my bed......

I am very impressed with your gardening skills, and of course your Whyeth treatment.
