    Another beautiful flower I have never seen. The deep pink/red colors are so beautiful against the yellow stamens.

    This columbine is just beautiful! I have columbines in my garden…from my grandmother’s garden..they are purple and some double pink ones…I just so enjoy them in the spring when they bloom! I love the colors of this red/pink one with the yellow! My mom has some that are all yellow..they are a great addition to the perennial garden…now, off to weed some in my gardens..the rain is coming in so it might be time to transplant some tomato plants from my tiny greennhouse and out to the garden today….

      Enjoy your garden and your columbines!

      • Deborah McKissic says:

        Thanks, Mary Jane! Enjoy your day there and your farm animals, fields and gardens…oh…I want chickens so bad..maybe a cow or two…I need to move…we have farmland all around us..but those farms were “grandfathered” in years, off I go to buy eggs from the farmer out behind me..and, gaze at his cows…and, dream! Then, home to plant those tomatoes!

          The antics of our chickens provide us with constant entertainment-our version of reality TV. Can’t you have just two chickens? There are so many cute homes for sale now for just two chickens.

            I wish I could have one chicken! I bought books and read up all about raising chickens and then asked our borough..even our borough manager said for years he has wanted chickens…I could have got them and no one would have known till I was turned in and had to pay fines…oh, my..can you believe it? In the city you can have chickens! Even the lady from rent the tried to help me and suggested fighting the ordinance…I am not a, I might have to be a mover…I really like my little cape cod house and cottage gardens, though…years of raising my family and grandkids here…I guess I will have to stick to “farm gazing” out back to my neighbor farmer…

    So happy to see that so many farmgirls in other states are growing our state flower the Columbine. We as Coloradans love their many colors and delicate flowers. In the Pikes Peak Mountains there are fields of them and they are a sight to see, all the vibrant colors.
    Thank you Mary Jane for sharing my State Flower with everyone.
