When I looked back on my site to see if I had posted other photographs of aquilegia, columbine or Granny’s bonnet, I found that I had, back in 2014. That flower looked so different from this one that I was amazed. Back then when I photographed them, we had dainty pink and white ones, not these strong more than double, almost spikey deep purple blooms. It seems that those delicate, rather pretty things did not survive and all that we have left are these, which I presume are much hardier. They even look strong, a little dirty and almost aggressive, if a flower could be described in that way and make quite a contrast from the gentle ones I have featured lately. It makes a change of colour, at least! I hope you have a lovely day today, my friends. It’s time for another (virtual) hug. A Flower a Day #274 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers I post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )
