Something about an anemone
What is it about the anemone? Is it the fanciful meaning of the word itself? “Daughter of the Wind.” Formidably beautiful.
Or is it the simple grace of these unpretentious blooms? Arriving late on the scene in the start of autumn, the anemone waves to the wind on long thin stems. They look so delicate. Yet they stand up to the wind. Flowering fortitude.
For more prints, see my Etsy store. The anemone is one of my favorites. I have plenty and more to come!

* In English, these words with an accent on the ante-penultimate syllable have the very clinical sounding name of “proparoxytones.” This post features TWELVE proparoxytones (not counting in this note). Can you find them all?
