Aquilegia or Columbine for Macro Saturday

Aquilegia or Columbine is a delicate and airy flower in the garden.  This one is pale pink.  I have a white one and also a purple which have not bloomed yet.

These plants are easy to grow in just about any soil.  They even tolerate dry conditions which makes them perfect for the Sandbox.  The plant does reseed so next year you will more.  For more macro photos visit here.    



Hi, I love the lavender colored columbine. They are just starting to bloom in my garden, but the caterpillars have been busy eating the leaves. Have a wonderful day tomorrow. Jennifer

I find these to be so interesting. All the little compartments sometimes with different colors in the middle.

I love columbine, have both the wild and cultivated varities in my garden. You are right about the new plants popping up all over the place. I usually transplant them into a bigger clump for the following year.

I love columbine. It doesn't seem to last very long here, as spring passes by in the blink of an eye, and it's sweltering lol. I have a pink and white one, and a creamy coloured one in my garden. Yours are very pretty! :)
beautiful images, well done, thank you for sharing. Wishing you happiness, Katherine

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
