Anemone hortensis

La Réserve Naturelle Nationale de la Plaine des Maures

1 April 2013

This is a beautiful area.  Take the road from Vidauban to La Garde Freinet.  Look out for a turning to the left signposted Plan de la Tour.  Not long after you pass a sign for the 'Reserve' mentioned above.  

We saw lots and lots of Anemone, some small wild Irises had already come out.  I imagine in a couple of weeks it will be covered with Irises.  In a few months it is the turn for the Cistus and Lavender Stoechas.   

I've never seen these shrubs growing in such profusion as there, it will be stunning.
