'C' is for Columbine

 The sweet Columbine grows abundantly in my garden!
 The 'gardener' tossed seed's here and there!
 I told him..beware...and he replied...
trust me.....
 and you will see  delightful Columbine everywhere!
Yes..please spread more seeds..
everywhere.

Shirley,
Oh, how lovely. And they are spreading all around your garden in different colors too! I often wonder what it would be like to visit your garden. It must be so peaceful. When I move to our final home, I would like a garden just like yours.

Have a happy weekend.

Love,
~Sheri

I have always loved columbine Shirley and yours are just beautiful. Mom always had them and I don't know why I haven't planted any. Maybe I'll plant some by the pool. That's where I have gradually been making a perennial bed. Each Spring I add a few more perennials to it. Something blooms almost all summer. You are so sweet to remember my sister. That was my older sister who was so ill a year ago and she is doing well now and looks great. Has lost some weight. In the photo at Luckett's is my younger sister. :) We had such a great time!

Gorgeous Columbine! I wish it did better in my garden, but I think it gets too much sun. Just love the pink and purple.
