Columbine 2013

The columbine in my yard is in full bloom.

 
The light purples and pinks are new this year.
 
 
 
Originally I had these dark purples and yellows. Evidence, I think,
 
 
 
that though the norticulturists breed for certain colors
 
 
eventually they revert back to their original beauty.
 
 
Mankind can only improve on Mother Nature so much ... and our improvements are not always permanent.

  1. I don't have any columbine. Do they require full sun?

  2. I love them! I have been reading about a few of the flowers I wanted and they won't work here. Some of them don't like wind. They definitely wouldn't like it at my house:-/

  3. So pretty! A friend picked up a light purple and a deep red for her garden this year.
