Wild Columbine

This is one of the earliest wild flowers that I remember from my childhood in Vermont. I found these in Essex, Massachusetts.

Wow Steve, that is a lovely salmony colour. I don't think I've seen a columbine that colour before.

The first photo of them in the mossy ground is my favourite - I've never seen them in the wild, only in National Trust gardens. They look nicer when they're free range.

Second time today I got the name of a flower I took some photos of last week - without knowing the name!

A wonderful flower - and the first time I have seen that color! Great closeup that last one!

I spent a good part of my youth in VT and remember these well. Love the detail in the closeup.

I too have fond memories of Vermont, the wildflowers, the wild food plants, the wildlife and the autumn leaves....
Your Columbine is a delight to the eye and memory as well.
