So even though I wasn’t much in the photo taking mode on our hike tonight, I just COULD NOT resist this patch of false rue anemone. I mean, could you??? So cheery. So full. So happy and bushy! So showy! Just screaming “look at me”! Probably the best patch I’ve seen all year- and believe me, I’ve seen a lot of patches! Oh and it’s a great example of the growth habit of this plant, as compared to true rue anemone and wood anemone. Ok so there – I have a technical justification for photographing it!
