Anemones at Wickiup Hill

Behold the charming wood anemone.
Sadly, it is quite poisonous.
Luckily, you can learn all about Anemone nemorosa
in the online version of Mrs. M. Grieve’s 1931 classic,
A Modern Herbal,
thanks to the good folks at Botanical.com.

  1. I had no idea they were poisonous. And where is Wickiup Hill? Sound so English country side ish.
