what I learned from drawing

I looked at these anemone's for years and never noticed that they have two pointy petals and two dimpled (or notched) petals until I tried to draw them. These have just opened here.

Huh. I never noticed that either. Too funny! I haven't seen these in flower yet this year.

I never would've noticed! I have to notice a lot of details to ID wildflowers but that detail would've gotten by me. This is a great photo because the white petals are not glaring as my white and yellow flower photos do. Marvelous.

I think I took the picture late in the evening.

Thanks.

I just LOVE discovering new things--it's one of my favorite things!
