Japanese Anemone Seed Fluffs

I was out taking pictures one morning this November and took these views of the Japanese anemone seeds in the Front Walk...

Anemones with a maple leaf they caught on its way down
 Just a couple of hours later,  I happened to be chasing the kids around the house and found them all fluffed out in the sun...

Of course, they were soon strew about the place as the kids went to work enjoying how their cotton-like seeds carry on the November wind.  And I over heard my little Anna, as she and her sister grasped clumps of fluff and gingerly tucked it into the nearby soil, "We are just like real gardeners, Grace!"

Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. How adorable! "Just like real gardeners"! Too cute. My granddaughter hates to have her lawn mowed, because then the dandelions are mown down, and as she says, "All the wishes are gone!" :)
