Dainty flowers, but very strong. I've also got some on my patch.
I wish I had some in different colours, mine seem to be a very ordinary white bordering on pink - sometimes.
I love aquilegias - they self sow themselves all over my garden. It's a lovely surprise seeing what colours I get each year. Those purple ones are just lovely.
They obviously enjoy the conditions where they have seeded themselves - nature knows best - mine are only just opening - they are just right for my type of gardening.
And you not even a flower man Mark. Aquilegias are rather promiscuous. We have a mixture of invited and uninvited ones. One has made a home in a planter at the base of a palm plant. It's doing no harm so is left to get on with it. They do seem a favourite with aphids though.
These are beautiful and those first ones are a stunning colour! lol x btw, I like your new banner!!
Very nice! I really like the shape of those.
Pretty, pretty, pretty. Nice shots Mark.
They have lovely flowers indeed but, they are also tough and invasive. Good self-seeders. They run quickly a very deep tap root so be careful to pull any seedling out on the places you don't want them to be.
I have loads of self seeded aquilegias in my garden, they even settle themselves in between the paving.
They are lovely - one of my favourite flowers at this time of year. I really love your deep purple one. They managed to self seed gently here when it was building rubble, I still find the odd one in odd places out the front, though I have rounded most of them into the borders now!
One of my favorites as well. They do self seed prodigiously, and so "walk-about" the garden
I just wanted to tell you that yours has become my favorite blog. I used to read it first, because I couldn't wait to see what was happening, but now, I save it for last, so I can end great. Thanks so much, I know it isn't always easy.
KeriAnne; Thank you so much for that lovely comment! That has really made my day. I shall hope not to disappoint you... :)
Lovely bean plants. Hope that you will share them with readers, after they start fruiting.I grew some last year. They did grow well, but due to lack of trellis support, it just gave up!Plant to grow this year, after summer . (India).
