  7. Patsi, they are all beautiful. The color on the first columbine is wonderful. I'd like to find that one for my garden. I like the winky series, I had Pinky Winky a few years ago. I'm thinking about adding a white bleeding heart. Yours is so pretty.

  8. Your photos are always so fantastic! The columbine look so dainty and fresh.

    The hyacinth bean vine seeds are nice seedlings right now! The orange cosmos sprouted while I was gone. I'm sure many more of the seeds you gave me are up, but I've not yet been able to search through the entire garden. So many weeds and so many planted seeds, I've got to figure out the difference! LOL

    Marnie,
    The first one is from a trade so I hope the name is correct. Did you say Pinky Winky?
    I have no pinks or reds. Must order some for next year.

  19. Frances,
    Gotta have variegated foliage. Adds interest.

    Joy,
    I'm sure there are more plants we share but just can't remember right now.

    Hermes,
    Welcome to my blog. Glad to know some are your favorites also.

    Avis,
    Welcome.
    Columbine are short lived but some rebloom and a little trouble starting from seed as I remember.
    A must have for shade.

    Gail,
    Ok, now I have to look up what you mentioned.
    One of many I don't recognized.

  21. Tatyana,

    Thanks.

  22. What a lovely assortment of blooms and foliage. I was wondering if it's your camera, or some way you posted your photos that you were able to get them that size, and so clear. Do you use a tripod?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sue,
    Even with a $150 camera you can get clear pictures but have to stand at least 3 feet from your object to be in focus. I use "webshots" which is free to save, CROP and enlarge for this blog. Hope that helps.

  24. I really love your light blue columbine. I need to look for some other varieties than just the common one I have.

  25. Patsi:
    Oooh, the Winky Blue Columbine is divine! I have been thinking of adding a new to the garden and this helps to confirm that it would be a very good thing! Beautiful photos - it's wonderful when we can see new and beautiful plants each and everyday!

  26. Jan,
    I just ordered seeds for different ones myself.
    Guess I could start some this year.
    ~~
    Teza,
    I have much shade so Columbine is a must to add color to the garden. Glad you enjoyed the pics...I know some just aren't good but it dosen't seem to bother me lately.
