Appalachia Through My Eyes – September Charm

pink anemone

It’s been over 15 years since my aunt shared a start of her Japanese Anemones with me. I have them growing behind the house underneath an old oil tank that we don’t even use anymore. The flowers are one of the last hurrahs of color in my yard so I look forward to them every fall.

I never knew the name of the variety until I googled and found they’re called September Charm. The name seems totally appropriate if you ask me.

    Having a few of these bright September Charms peeping out is good. More would be better! I wonder if they would grow here, in southern Connecticut.

    How pretty! And, I love the name, especially since I was born in September and love this month already. 🙂

    They sure are pretty! Kind of looks like Dogwood.

    Well maybe one comment. Why ain’t the Deer Hunter split that old oil tank and made a BBQ grill out of it? Er a smoker? Why you could put a whole deer on it!

    Nothing too small to miss your keen eyes, Tipper. They are truly such a beautiful little charming flower. I daresay there have been times in my life when I was so occupied with workaday life I might have just overlooked such a treasure. It is surprising what wonderful creatures and flowers we discover when we take time to notice them.

    They remind me of a dogwood bloom. I don’t think I’ve seen that variety of Anemones , but they sure are pretty.

    That is a nice picture. The contrast of the weathered wood and the delicate pastel pink emphasizes both. Pastel is not what one expects in the fall, mostly yellow composite flowers now. Good job and a good name would be September Charm with a double meaning.

    It takes a lot of forethought but having color year-round helps make a house a home. I am waiting now for goldenrod to bloom. I planted three camelias last fall (two red called Yuletide and one white called White By The Gate) and have been hoping they would be blooming at Christmas but it is not looking like it will happen. Not unusual for new planting.

    I’ve seen those flowers but never new their name. They are indeed a lovely last hurrah!
