One of the few flowers that I found on the plot whilst clearing it during the latter half of 2007 was an Aquilegia, or Columbine if you prefer.
My mother’s garden always had lots of them as she happily left them to self-seed all over the place, and I’ll do the same with mine!
Being a perennial they die back over the winter then grow again in the spring. I took this photo recently and like the way water droplets sparkle on the leaves.
Last summer it looked wonderful in full flower
and I’m hoping that it’ll do the same this year.
