Anemone sylvestris is a difficult plant to obtain once the early spring is behind us. Plants tend not to be "retailed" once they are beyond their season of interest and by the end of May this mid spring flowering Anemone has past its peak. I wish to use it all the time but it is never available.
I have very little experience with it an have little to offer. Experiment please. The only thing I know is that, like Japanese Anemone, it runs around and self seeds itself - but in my opinion, never enough. I love plants (that I like) that run, cover space, and colonize and area, taking care of the space for me.
Here, this image is a plant I moved to my garden last summer. I had to share a little plug from a clients house since I can rarely get it out of the nursery.
The images I've shared...
I couldn't decide which I thought was the best to use...
I posted this "BOOMerang" up on the 'Gram feed yesterday and hashtaged #marcelmauss (Marcel Mauss) who is an old legendary French anthropologist who was practicing in the early 1900's. He wrote and essay titled "Les Techniques Du Corps" or "Techniques of the Body." His work in the essay was to point towards how you could see cultural differences in how bodies move. In a favorite anecdote of mine, he writes of a massive production and logistical complication during WWI where in the trenches that constantly needed to be dug out, each of the armies, British and French, had their own specific shovel. I believe the English soldiers used a long handled round-point shovel and the French soldiers used a short, D-handled spade. But in battle, as the different platoons and battalions of soldiers would be rotated out of the trenches, so to did the shovels need to be replaced as the English soldiers bodies had not been trained and disciplined to the short D-handled spades as well as the French soldiers bodies were unfamiliar with the long handled round-points.
You can't buy technique. It only comes through tradition, training, and practice. If you want to see an expert, watch them use a shovel, a rake; watch them make a landscape plan or drawing. Beware of fancy tools, trucks, and computer produced images - costumes all of them.
