March 24, 2012 -- epimedium and columbine flowers

I wish I had the energy to work on a better photo of this, but I don't. This is really a sweet combination: delicate epimedium flowers (tiny pale yellow flowers that look a little like miniature columbine flowers) and reddish orange flowers of Virginia's native columbine (Aquilegia canadensis). These two plants' blooming seasons almost always overlap, but the columbine seems earlier than usual this year. Near the lip of the glass bottle is one young Lenten rose leaf to sort of anchor the whispy flowers.

  1. Love this...I have this columbine, too, but mine aren't blooming yet. Will you be my best friend? LOL
