In a salute to Colorado and my friends who live there, it’s time to show off my blooming Columbine. Few flowers have such striking form.
The Columbine is the Colorado state flower. I love how they grow wild along hiking trails in the Rockies.
Columbine are prolific, so ask your gardener friends for plants. Mine came from three different yards.
Once blooms start dying off, make sure to cut and compost them. If they dry, they’ll seed and multiply like crazy.
