The Yellow Queen is blooming beautifully and it is my first yellow aquilegia. It has required many failed attempts and plenty of waiting to get here.
For aquilegias it has been a perfect start of a year. No heavy rains to ruin their flowers.
To be honest it has been extremely dry up here in the north. All the other plants look that they have been beaten by the sun and the lack of water.
According to the weather forecast it should rain today. Now I am just waiting and hoping.
