Anemones in Israel
Anemone coronaria in Israel
My friend Ryan Guillou, a young American horticulturist currently working for a year at the Jerusalem Botanical Garden, posted these images on his Facebook page today and has kindly given permission to reproduce them here. The site is on the edge of the Negev Desert south of Tel Aviv and has been cultivated in the past, but has now been colonized by this astonishing mass of Anemone coronaria (and many other interesting plants).
