Anemone ID #3

Pure white flower, one per stem, about 10 inches off the ground. Perennial. I think this is A. sylvestris. What do you think?

Gene, I'm about to walk down the street to photograph A. sylvestris for comparison.  Back shortly...

And... (a few minutes later  ;))... here is Anemone sylvestris, about a foot tall, spreading:

Also, for comparison, here is our locally native Anemone canadensis, with leaves a bit broader yet (rampantly spreading also):

From this at least, I would not guess that your Anemone #3 is either... I'm sure no expert though!  Can anyone else help out?

Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Zone 3

Very nice flower but no sylvestris. Sorry, no idea what it is!

Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers  (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
