Description:

As well as Bluebells (see an earlier entry today) Wood Anemonies are doing well here. They used to be known as 'Windplants' by people who believed that they only opened when the wind blew. They also used to be known as 'Thunderbolts' by people who believed that picking them would cause a storm.
