Flower Fridays: Anemone

Bold Anemone FlowersAnemone flowers are such frilly beauties. Bold in deep dark crimsons and purples. Or delicate and soft in whites and pale pinks. They mean forsaken in the language of flowers though there is no reason to abandon them for your bouquet because they also mean expectation. So I say go for them and expect the loveliest of weddings!

Wedding Bouquet with Delicate White AnemoneAnemone and columbine
Where gloom has lain
Opened in gardens
Between love and disdain

Made somber by the sun
Our shadows meet
Until the sun
Is squandered by night

Gods of living water
Let down their hair
And now you must follow
A craving for shadows

XOXO Rachel
