Flower of the month | December | Anemone

This is a little arbitrary but I consider Anemone coronaria, the Crown or Poppy anemone, to be the first flower of the new flowering season. The fact that you can see the first ones as early as December (and even in November in some sheltered sea level places on the South coast of the island) shows how lucky we are to be located so far to the South of Europe: spring starts early in Crete!
