  1. You have a wonderful collection of these lovely cottage garden gems, Cathy. Judging by your tags I guess you’re following the troubled NCCPG’s Touchwood story so you’ll especially treasure them.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Kate – and yes, I had seed from her about 2 years ago and this is first flowering for them. I haven’t checked recently to see how things are getting on there but it must have been devastating

  2. P.Stadden says:

    A nice collection of Columbines

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks – as it is the first flowering for many of them I need to be selective and remove or move any that don’t make the cut!

  3. Cathy says:

    What a selection, Cathy. Had no idea the shapes varied so much. Really nice to see them all together!

  4. Eliza Waters says:

    Wow, what an impressive and beautiful collection – I love them!

  5. Chloris says:

    What an amazing collection. Are they all grown from seed? I love every one of them.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Chloris, and yes, all but one of these are from TA seed so it is exciting to have them flowering for the first time and fascinating to observe the differences at close quarters

  6. What a parade of pretty bonnets! Lovely! 🙂

    I was going to post a series of bonnet variations too, but it was too windy for photography. However, your collection is far more extensive and diverse than anything my grannies in the garden can aspire too. They are rather profligate, but a great addition to any garden.

    • Cathy says:

      Hope the wind drops enough to capture your hat collection too! It is most exciting to have these flowering as all but one are from Touchwood seed and some of those are from mixed packets so the red & orange ones, for example, are from the same packet but subtly different – such fun to see the results!

  8. What a great collection…I have many but not all of these!

  9. Anna says:

    Lovelies one and all. I wonder how many of them were introduced by you to the garden and how many appeared by magic.

  10. Brian Skeys says:

    I have Aquilegia envy.

  11. joanna says:

    You do things on a grand scale. I had no idea that there were so many shapes and colours for Aquilegia. And then to have them all in one garden. Fingers crossed the disease stays away.
