Sarah of Saipua has recently turned me into an anemone and ranunculus convert. And it's not just because ranunculus is, like, THE most fun word to say ever. I have been a die-hard lily and orchid fan for probably my entire life. Growing up, every summer would bring bunches and bunches of tiger lilies to my mother's gardens. I have always hated roses and their selfish imposition onto the floral world. Then I saw those sweet, sweet anemones and I fell in love with their delicacy, friskiness and expressiveness. Yes, I just called a flower frisky. I'll call it flirty too. They're like long, dark eyelashes batting playfully over some baby blues. Ok, I'll stop talking dirty and get to the good stuff.
