Columbines continued & froggy sees the first snow
It was brought to my attention by several readers that the photo is not of a columbine. After looking at it more carefully it is indeed not a columbine but a Delphinium. How embarrassing. No wonder I didn't know the name of it! That should have been a clue. I did a google image search and it's a Delphinium grandiflora Butterfly blue. A beautiful blue, one to rival the Meconopsis betoniciflolia poppy.
Here are several photos of it on the Naturehills website.
That will teach me to look at the photo more closely before posting. I sorted pictures in the photo album using thumbnails and didn't view it full screen before posting thus the erroneous plant was featured.
Senility is setting in earlier than anticipated.
Thanks to those who caught the error.
I don't know the name of this columbine but it's one of my favorites. The blue is very blue and is not exaggerated in the photo. And froggy saw it's first snow this weekend. We're finally seeing some winter weather but some of the plants persist in putting out buds.
