Columbine (Aquilegia), also called Granny’s Bonnet, and I can see why. Front garden, Staffordshire, England. May 2017.

  1. Love Columbines – use to have a lot of these in our yard when we lived in Arizona years ago. Visited Colorado a lot and you find an abundance of columbines in that state.. Lovely photos Pete.

  2. What a quaint name β€” and so suited to this lovely flower. It will be quite awhile before we see them blooming here. Thanks for the peek at what’s to come. πŸ™‚

  3. Love that second image Pete. I find Columbines especially hard to photograph with high flowering plants just getting too ‘busy’ to give effective compositions in photography. That 2nd image is just perfect.

  4. Such nice images. Never knew they were also called Granny’s Bonnets, have always known them as Aquilegia. They self-seed in my garden, and outside on the lane under my wall all the time about now.

    • Thank you, Jill πŸ™‚ I only knew them as Aquilegia, too, until I discovered they were also known as Granny’s Bonnets. I haven’t seen any in my garden for some years until these showed up.
