  1. Lovely image, Mike! Our garden has been taken over by columbines this spring, mostly pink but also some white. They seem to be everywhere, in the paths as well as the beds, so I guess I didn’t do a very good job of deadheading last summer. Oh well…they’re very pretty, and the hummingbirds and bees love them.
