Red Columbine/ Today's Flowers

Wild red columbine (Aquilegia canadensis)

The nodding blossoms of this delicate yet hardy perennial are often pollinated by hummingbirds.

I just discovered this spring that my Mom has pink ones. She's saving me seeds. :)
Lovely shot!

That is a beautiful and delicate flowers. We have blue-and-white columbines in our area, but I've never seen one like this.

Kathy said...

Like Pat, every columbine picture I see is so much different than other ones I've seen. It is certainly a diverse little flower, but a very pretty one nonetheless.

Oh, how I love Columbine! It doesn't like our soil, though. :-(

Nice photo.

The red columbine is beautiful. I'm not sure if I've ever seen red columbine before.

Thanks for stopping by to visit and see my mom's columbines. Yours looks like a painting--beautiful. ♥♫

I think they have Columbines in Colorado but I don't recall seeing any here. Very beautiful.

Re your question on Ocala: No, we haven't photographed all the horses...probably about 15 or so. I'm not even sure where they are all located. Every once in awhile we run into one we haven't seen before.

This pink variety is my favorite. Love them!

That is a stunning colour of columbine. If I am coming by your way I may email you, as I would love a cutting.
