Columbine

Columbine1

I do not know why but I have always loved columbines. I used to have only one pink variety which my grandmother had had for many years. I started to calculate that the variety must have been here more than seventy years.

As a child I used to like collecting the aquilegia seeds. That must have started my enthusiasm for columbines.

Currently I have several different colors and shapes growing. Not as many as I would like to have but I guess there is no limit to my greed.

All of them have been grown from a seed. Up here in the north it always takes at least two years to see the first blooms. Well, I guess waiting just makes it more worth while.
