Spring snowflakes and hyacinths remind me of my childhood walking through woodlands and meadows. Although the hybrid anemones were not found in the woods, windflowers (Anemone nemorosa) were abundant studding the forest with their white flowers. My garden blooms are a reminder of this idyllic memory of my early life in Europe.
