New Garden Fave

My neighbor and I are already plotting to spread columbines from this border to other spots in the yard. I want to add some blue and purple ones to the group, which includes tall white ones, spectacular large yellow ones, these large red and pink ones, small nodding pink and very small red-and-yellow ones. The seed capsules are forming and I can't wait to make a new bed for them.

Our former neighbor, Edna, brought back flowers every time she visited South Carolina. She planted irises in many colors and in tribute to her generosity we have shared them in turn with others. There are stands of iris in full bloom at two nearby churches that came from Edna's original crop and we will be giving away many more to help beautify the neighborhood.
