It was just plain nasty today! Although, I'll take this over last weeks heat and humidity. :) Your flowers are beautiful, as always. I particularly like that first shot with the building in the background -- they compliment each other. :)

Some great variety I think columbine is on my "list". Great shots for a warm feeling... but coat and mitts?? I guess that what happens going from warm to cool. Those first spring days felt so warm -- now they would feel cold.

These are lovely - I think this is the first year that I have fully appreciated aquiligea.

I had never really noticed the curl on the spurs before and that they are punctuated by a little sphere. How enchanting the shapes are.The deep colours too are lovely. What variety are they?
