Columbine Orphan



One of the pleasures of gardening is when unexpected flowers show up. For the last several years there have been green columbine leaves in the rocks on the path by the firewood stack under the hot tub deck. Becky, my Master Gardener said, "Just leave them". I wanted to pull them up as "weeds". I left them. As I was getting out the hoses for the year today, I noticed this columbine blooming out of the rocks - a true surprise. I don't have this color columbine anywhere else and it is a double blossom.
