One of my favorite flowers, but one of the trickiest to pronounce, is the Anemone. As the frost starts to die off, anemones seem to pop up in all of my favorite flower shops and I inevitably start bringing small bunches home to decorate our dining table. I’ve always loved the frilly collar around these flowers – they seem to frame the petals so proudly. This is the perfect time of year to grab even a single anemone stem – they have such a beautiful, gestural movement to them that they can hold their own in a vase just as well as in a bunch. xo, grace
