Red and Yellow Columbine in My Garden

I planted this Columbine in my flower garden last year and this Spring it has really grown. It’s loaded with flowers that are just beginning to go by.

Columbine is one of the flowering plants I’ve come to enjoy most in my New England landscape. The colors are gorgeous and they provide seeds when the flowers die which I can plant for the following year.

I also have purple and pink plants, but none of them bloomed as profusely as this one.

Pretty Columbine in my Garden

Although Florida, where I now live, has it’s own beautiful nature, flowers like the columbine will not grow there. I also miss my peonies and hydrangeas.

    WOW! 5 seconds ago, I couldn’t have picked Columbine out of a lineup. Actually, 5 seconds from now I probably won’t be able to either. But this sure is beautiful. Spectacularly so. If someone had planned where each and every little shadow should fall, she couldn’t have made a more beautiful flower portrait. You should make this into a poster for your Zazzle shop. And when you make your next floral calendar…maybe this should be the covergirl.

    This has always been my mother’s favorite flower. I’m not sure why. I should ask her.

    Yours are simply beautiful. 🙂

    1. Thank you Kathryn. This one was especially huge for some reason. It’s only been in my garden for one year, but seems happy there.
