White columbines








columbines cont'd.

Here are several different white columbines scattered in the planting beds. I'm partial to the elegance of the white blooms and it's ability to harmonize with almost any thing.

After all these years of blogging, I finally figured out that if I re-sized the photos to a manageable screen filling 800x600 pixels, the photos would load faster and would not be so large as to see only a partial portion of the picture when you clicked the blog photo, obviating the need to use the scroll bars which is a PITA when viewing pictures.

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

The white, long-spurred columbine are so graceful looking.
My favorite combination is the second photo, with both white and bicolor white columbine, poppies and I think Japanese maple leaves. It's lovely small, but really terrific when expanded!

Hi Annie,
For some reason the flowers in the second photo thrive surrounded by the Japanese maple, dogwood (not in photo), a tall blueberry (in the back) and the yew now removed and replaced by a Hollywood juniper, Juniperus chinensis 'Torulosa'. I love that name sounds like the yeast.
As you can see we manage to pack'em in. Thanks for looking and your kind words. Too bad about the last photo which is one of the nicest white columbines. It was in a place where I couldn't avoid including the bags of topsoil. :(
