    That flower is a beauty…..and it’s a very good photo of it too. Nice composition and background blur. Is this out of your garden, Eliza?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you very much, Vicki. Yes, out in our back yard. I’m hoping to make a big patch by sowing seeds at the end of the season. Can’t have too many of these!

  2. Anne says:

    Very pretty blooms to wake up to!

  3. It’s that time of the year!!!!

  4. John says:

    Wow, beautiful!!!! ☺️

  5. Love to see the stacked petals!

    Morning Eliza. This name always makes me chuckle as it is a bit of an old-fashioned name for such an exotic flower. Actually raining in France today – my, but we really need it!

    Charming and delightful!

  8. Happy Wednesday, Nora, you’re looking beautiful.

  9. Alice says:

    What a cheerful bloom. I looked it up and found out who it is named after. What an honor.

  10. Dale says:

    She’s a beauty! And so is your wonderful image.

  11. I have never seen Nora before. Such a jaunty flower.

    Loveliness Eliza.

  13. I had to look and find out who Nora is, love it. Would not have guessed. Granny, indeed.

  14. Donna Donabella says:

    Nora is one of the most beautiful even more so in person. I let her seed all over my old garden. Wish I could hear. Instead I am hoping to seed the native red columbine along the woods edge.

    What a gorgeous one!

  17. Tina says:

    Hot summer color! Beautiful blooms, Eliza.

  18. Kris P says:

    She’s a beauty! Aquilegia is yet another genus of plants I’ve struggled to grow here – they rarely last a season, much less a year.

  19. I love that deep rosy color and it’s striking set against the green. Lovely!

  20. Debbie says:

    Eliza, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of these before — it’s just lovely! Is it a perennial?

  21. Lovely double, Eliza. And a great shot of it as well.

    Oh pretty

  23. Robin says:

    So pretty! 🙂

  24. Maria says:

    Your garden did enjoy all the rain!

  25. susurrus says:

    What a generous flower and a striking colour combination too. It makes me think of the old swimming caps covered in petals.

  26. Now that is a very different looking Columbine variety … only the center looks familiar. I have some pinkish ones too but they have the came petal shape as the native Columbine.

    I love the name of this flower ~ it seems like something I’d find growing wild along a trail, something to keep me entranced for a while. Very striking, wonderful shot.

  28. Jane Lurie says:

    Fabulous, Eliza! Love the composition which encourages my eye to wander. 🙂
