My columbine plant starting blooming and has buds all over. I grew these years ago, but don't remember the flowers being so large!
Yesterday I planted three white azaleas I found at Home Depot for only $2.48 a piece. And after getting some tips from Glendann, I think I found the perfect spot on the side of the house. Most of the blooms where already fading when I planted them, but there are still buds left to bloom.
All of the lily bulbs are breaking ground, I can't wait until those Casa Blanca Lilies are blooming. Last year the scent in the air was incredible. I added five more of those and 30 more bulbs in a variety of size and color. Should be a colorful summer this year.

These are such beautiful Aquilegias. I have them too and their flowers are normal sized. I hope that they will be bigger this year too. I guess there are natural forces at work that we just do not understand....I like the results though.
Oh I do love Aquilegias and I have quite a few in my garden, including the one you have pictured. We in Scotland call them Granny's bonnets are they are said to resemble the 'poke' bonnets that ladies used to wear.
I was just surprised that the blooms are nearly 4" across. The white ones I had back in '98 where smaller.
Wow !!!I would love to have a columbine blooming like that oneThe color is wonderful.Thanks so much for the pictures.
Glendann, I will be saving seeds from this one and would be more than happy to send them to you when its time!
I'm a columbine fan too, and have lots of different ones in the garden. I like those with the long spurs. Please bear in mind that large aquilegias sown from seed might look very different from the mother plant. They cross-breed easily, which is one of the reasons why I've got so many. Can't bear to remove any seedlings just in case they're stunning.
Those are gorgeous blooms. That is a beautiful blue tint.
I love Columbine too. Yours looks just like one I found hiding under the Rhubarb last year. Where it came from I'll never know, but it is gorgeous!
