Front and Backyard Columbines

My favorite blossoms of the year…especially in the evening light by the river. I hope you enjoy my gardens of columbines!

These beauties grow wild in the foothills of the mountains here in Western Washington, but I encourage them to flourish in my yard by gathering and scattering their seeds in a tight area each year, working to fill in the ‘holes’.

    • I’m not sure I could pick a favorite, but I love those too. I should’ve taken a picture of the trumpety side of that one. I have more photos that I took with my ‘real’ camera, but I did the post from trying out my new phone camera. I like it!


  2. Beautiful indeed! I love columbines too.

    Wow, and I see this was with a phone camera – beautiful! What great colors, and they’re stunning in that grouping. Delicious.

    • Thanks! 🙂 I noticed I’m not constantly carrying me ‘real’ camera since getting this new phone, although there are still things that are better on the Nikon, of course. Sure is handy to have a good phone camera with actual quality zoom too.
