Big Wood Anemone

Chinch Gryniewicz wrote '...found (well, Dai Morris pointed me in the right direction again) a rather unusual case of floral gigantism in a Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa) in Bishops Wood nature reserve today. I hate those shots with a tape measure in them to indicate the size of an object - so I didn't. I think the context of the other, normal-sized anemones shows very nicely the dimensions of this giant - it would put some decent sized daffodils to shame.'
That is an incredible specimen - interestingly the leaves appear to be quite big too!
