A for Anemone

Jeg så denne bogstavleg hos Petunia i går og bestemte mig straks for at melde mig til.

Reglerne:
Hver uge får deltagerne et nyt bogstav. De skal så blogge om bogstavet i ord eller billeder.









I saw this alphabet game yesterday and immediately decided to try it.

The rules:
Every week we get a new letter to blog about in words or pictures.

Anemone has long been one of my favorite names from nature. I am glad to see it in print. When you get to s, would sea anemone qualify?

Velkommen til ABC i ord og bilder:) Så flott at du fant frem til denne lille leken!
Anemone er en vakker blomst og et vakkert navn også.
Kan godt forstå at du valgte dette:)

Oh yes, sure. Not so sure I can find any in our garden, though.

The name is beautiful, but so is the flower.

Petunia: tak!
Jeg tænkte, at denne leg var så enkel, at en dansker også kunne klare den. Og jeg er lidt stolt af min overskrift, som kan bruges både på dansk og engelsk.

We have gorgeous pink anemones in our garden. I will try to take a picture tomorrow.

Sounds like fun, I'm intrigued as to what other words/pictures you come up with. After all you could have picked something so simple for 'A' but instead opted for something quite exotic. A beautiful picture by the way, it brightened this otherwise gloomy, wet day - thank you.

Patti: I would really like to see those. In Denmark they are wild flowers, mostly white but there is also a rare blue variety.

Petty: it was not all that exotic as I had the photo on my computer already (the flowers are from a forest area behind our house), but I had to think for some time to come up with something that began with an A in both English and Danish. I am not sure I can do that every week, but let´s see.

Also interesting symbolically. In Ovid, Venus creates the anemone from the blood of Adonis, her dead lover.

According to Wikipedia, anemones signify "a dying hope" and "forsaken".

Tim: thank you for this information. To me it is first of all a message of spring, and it is one of the most beautiful flowers around us. As we live in an old vicarage, we have a huge, rather unkempt garden, plus a small ´wood´. So for us, spring begins with thousands of blue crocus, afterwards these gorgeous white anemones - and then finally the wood is taken over by a nasty plant that smells of onions ;(
