The Flowers Appear

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.   Song of Solomon 2

We have a rather nice patch of mature columbine beneath our crabapple tree.
They hide the gas meter and other gaumy stuff on that side of the house.
They are various colors.  I particularly like this one.

Beautiful! This is one more columbine than I've seen here this spring, and the columbine is our state flower.

Grace, I'm happy we could show you one of these. They are beautiful.

Vee, we also have yellow/white and the Colorado blue/white. Also one that is between blue and purple; is that blurple?

Shark, In addition to the simple columbine in different colors, we have a couple of “double bloom” plants in cream and pink. Unusual, but I like the simple ones better.
