What an unusual flower the Columbine is. It looks like someone took two flowers and glued them together.
so very beautiful. I love your close up shots.
This is fabulously beautiful. I have a bunch of columbines in my yard; along with irises and sweet peas, they are one of my favorite flowers. (Once we visited a friend's farm in Texas and my younger daughter called his combine a columbine; she must have heard me talk about columbines a lot.) Thanks for posting this!
