Buds of what?

By Nettles  
Well I thought I was going to have time to spend on EPZ yesterday but no, so I'm sorry that I didn't catch up with anybody. My day is relatively clear today so I will do my best to catch up.

I have absolutely no idea what the flowers will be on this plant but I thought the buds were worth taking a shot of. Thank you to CarolG for the identification, can't wait for the flowers.

I hope that the sun is shining on you today and that you all have a great weekend.

Looks like it could be anemone japonica, Annette, look forward to seeing the flower when it is open, should be mauve or white. Carol

Excellent! Agree with CarolG. They can be single or semi double, tall or quite short too, depending which variety! White tends to be less rampant than the Pink versions.
