That is a great photograph, love the texture. I have lots of wild ones in the garden, they spread like mad!! Hope you have a lovely sunny day like us, Jackie in Surrey?
Julia, This looks like one of those old illustrations of plants. It's perfect!
Such a beautiful flower and photo. Nicely done edit that would be beautiful if framed. Have a wonderful week!
These self seed in my garden, and although I have no brilliant colour combinations, there is an endless variety of pale pinks, blues and mauves. Love your take on one of my favourites Julia.
A lovely image. According to carol Klein the parts at the back of the petals are called spurs.
Beautiful, Julia! So delicate, and the background is perfect. I love this flower.Thanks for your lovely comment! Glad you like my video! All going according to plan with the move - we should exchange contracts tomorrow, and we're set for completion on Friday. Can't believe it's all happening at last. Still lots of boxes to pack but we don't have to actually move till August as the builders are in before that, so no panic (as I keep telling myself lol!!).Shoshi
So soft and pretty. We refer to them as honeysuckle or columbine. I like their "real" name.
Really love this shot my friend, its a beaut.
I did not know they were Aquilegia. We always referred to them as columbine. I also would like to know what the 'tails' are called.
Gorgeous shot and beautifully edited. I have some of those in my flower beds - columbine here, and I let them spread.
Thank you for your great comments, Julia! It's been an exciting couple of days - finally letting ourselves into our new house was amazing, I can tell you. The whole thing has made a lovely birthday celebration for me! God has indeed been good - His hand has been on this whole thing from beginning to end, and we know the house is so right for us.Still loads to do but I'm taking it easy today after such a busy day yesterday.Shoshi
I have many different colors of Columbine in our yard, but I love this wild variety the best. The part that sticks out the back is called a spur, a modified petal. The hummingbirds really like this flower...so do i!
This has a lovely vintage Victorian feel to it, like an old botanical print.
Thank you for your comments! Every one is valued!
