One Dollar Anemones
I only spent a dollar on an envelope of anemone bulbs. I bought from the market next door which doesn't specialize in flowers but where they try to sell everything. I was surprised to find these bulbs among the clothes and food. I bought them without having high hopes, mainly attracted by my passion for these flowers and because of the very low price.
I understood if I didn't get it right, that anemones are flowers specific to the island of Crete. I came to this conclusion after seeing some posts by @traisto and @fotostef. Where they live, i.e. in Crete, the anemone grows spontaneously, it is a wildflower that covers the fields at the beginning of spring. I've seen some fantastic photos in their posts.
In Romania, further north, where I live, there are no such anemones in the wild (i.e. growing wild, wherever they want) or maybe there are (I have learned to know that I don't know anything and for this reason, I am weary of being sure) and I don't know that. The only anemones I have seen so far have been in a famous painting by a great Roman painter, Stefan Luchian, and in florists.
After many negative experiences with many plants bought by the envelope, I didn't have high hopes this time either. Maybe that's why I had a big surprise and reward until the end. The anemones sprouted, grew, and gave me some lovely flowers. I can't stop myself from showing them to you!
Some opinions about Liketu.
I'm glad there is a new place where photography lovers can express themselves and, more importantly, show their photos. I said photo lover and not a photographer for personal reasons because I'm not a photographer but I love photography very much! I have seen from the other posts of fellow members that most of them are more photo lovers than photographers and I am glad for that. Professionals overwhelm and intimidate amateurs like me.
I also have a few requests that can be taken as suggestions.
First of all, it would be nice if we could have a preview before posting, and the possibility to edit, so we can correct any image and text errors.
The second problem is related to the way the photos appear, without space between them, stuck together (that is, of course, if we don't want to put a comment under each one).
This final image with many photos stuck together always reminds me of my early days in Hive, when I didn't know how to put a space between photos.
I ( I saw that others also) found a solution, I noticed that I can edit in other front-ends after I post with Liketu, but I would like more to be able to do everything just in Liketu.
However, I must respect my disbelief in absolute opinions, and if I am wrong in these statements, I apologize.

Thank you very much!
A Dollar well spent, rewarded for the effort, hope they seed, starting a small area perhaps continue to flower into fields, a pretty colour too!
@joanstewart(1/10) gave you LUV. wallet | market | tools | discord | community | <><
Thanks, that's what I thought, that I spent that dollar well. I hope the anemones will sprout again next year, more would be even better.
Rewarding in every way, now to wait to see if they make themselves totally at home and wild themselves into the area.

I will have the answer next spring. I hope to see them again. Thank you!
Look forward to hearing that they bloom again next spring!
Thank you! I'm glad we'll still be here in a year.
Always positive, or we would fall apart.... 😄
Those anemones are ao beautiful. I think you have a garden rich in flowers.
I posted my first photo on Liketu yesterday. You can check it. However, I could not log into on liketu.com, thus I posted it via their community. I don't know which features liletu has.
I have a small yard where I try to bring as many flowers as possible.
What a beautiful colour! And how are you @bluemoon?
What can I say more than I'm getting older, I'm starting to feel it in my body... fortunately the brain thinks I'm still young. Like everywhere else, but differentiated according to how we live, and well, and less well... I'm glad spring is here, I'm getting some energy from nature.
What are you doing? I wonder if you also have time to rest or relax but I'm afraid you have to work all the time.
It is frustrating no longer being able to do what you could in your younger years. But I think it is amazing that your brain stays young! The beauty of Spring is truly inspiring and energizing. I'm enjoying your beautiful photography - although I always do. Your masterful photography shows beauty despite the seasons
We're well thank you. Busy yes, but it is not necessarily bad being busy just welcome when we can relax and take a break
Well done, both for your gardening and your photography :)
Thank you, I'm so glad you said that!

Thanks for the offer but I have to decline. I'm past my school years, now I'm retired.
What an amazing photos
Wow, looks like they turned out quite well. Great shots to!
These are some fantastic flower shots. Thanks for sharing them with us.
With pleasure. Thank you!
These beauties are awesome! Great job @bluemoon! I hope you will have anemones every year from now on. Just when ours stop, it will be your turn! Wonderful photos!
Thank you very much! I will try to buy anemone bulbs every spring, I have to have them every year. You have so many!
Oh yes, you need to keep the balance! They are fabulous!
Thanks for trusting me to keep the balance! I'll try.
I didn’t know about Liketu, I will take a look at it. I hope to post photography again here soon but my time is limited :/
Great photos as always, thanks for sharing.
My pleasure! Time is a big issue for me too...
What colorful anemones! I had not seen this anemone color
Yes, it is one of the most beautiful colors.
These anemones look beautiful and you've taken great shots as usual, I've seen too many great shots from you and find it gad to accept that professionals intimidate you, you're just being modest and that's cool 👍. Also your humility shines throughout this post, I like the stance of being wary of sounding sure, I adopt it a lot too.
Thanks for your kind opinion. I really enjoyed reading your comment!
