Cutleaf anemone

Most of the anemones seen in the Hills are white, so it's always nice to see the pink ones. The dark pink anemones have black stamens, not yellow.

I took this photo last year, having no clue what on earth this was, other than the stage following its flowering stage (fruit or seed)...I saw a few as my husband and I were zipping back out of the foothills trail Thurs., and realized this is the next stage of the cutleaf anemone, after flowering. My "botany Bible" calls it an aggregate of cottony achenes.
