Wood Anemones and Hepaticas

Wood Anemones & Hepaticas – Vitsippor & Blåsippor

DSCN5761-3     DSCN5777-3

 

The white Wood Anemone is our most common wild spring flower.
It grows almost anywhere, and in suitable conditions often form large colonies.

The blue Hepatica is also called Liver Leaf in English, because of the leaf resembling the three lobes of the liver. (It is also sometimes called Liverwort, but that name can also refer to an entirely different flower; see reference in the Wikipedia article.)

The Hepatica is much more rare here than the wood anemone, but in some protected places (like in this nature reserve), colonies of these can also be found.

Sandra is right, I adore wildflowers! And getting to see these from Sweden is special. What a horrible name for a pretty little blue flower, even if a liver does have three lobes, really!!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.







My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
