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.
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
A nice collection of Columbines
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!
What a selection, Cathy. Had no idea the shapes varied so much. Really nice to see them all together!
Thanks Cathy – it’s a good way of showing how different they are, and I had to leave some out!
Wow, what an impressive and beautiful collection – I love them!
Thanks, me too Eliza!
What an amazing collection. Are they all grown from seed? I love every one of them.
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
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.
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!
Camera is ready and waiting!
What a great collection…I have many but not all of these!
They are such a joy to see aren’t they?
Lovelies one and all. I wonder how many of them were introduced by you to the garden and how many appeared by magic.
Not magic this time, Anna, as all but one of them are from seed!
I have Aquilegia envy.
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.
I suppose the potential number of variations will be infinitesimal…
