Little Lanterns

Columbines come in many sizes and colors.

My largest have purple blooms.  My most numerous have pink blooms.


The white bloomers stand out in shade.

My favorite is named Little Lanterns/ Aquilegia canadensis.


It usually resides in a hypertufa trough.

I put it in the ground over the winter to avoid freezing.

The pencil shows just how tiny it is.


The blooms look like tiny glowing lanterns.


I will be moving it back into a trough.

I had to lie down flat on my belly to get these photos.


Dirty again. I must remember to clean off the pencil before putting it back behind my ear.
