  4. These are delightful. You have the prettiest bulbs ever. I remember the Iris reticulata form last year.

  5. Vibrant. I have to admit that despite visiting Caen I was unaware of this connection to one of our favourite flowers.

    1. It's native to some parts of southern France so maybe anemone de Cannes would be more accurate.

    1. So do I Ali and I love the effect at the centre. It's just like a cornonet which I suppose gives then the name anemone coronaria

  9. Anemone de -caen are so lovely, Sue. Only once I could grow them in a pot. I think they aren't for our climate, they aren't enough hardy in winter. BUT.. are such touching!
