Silent Saturday - Aquilegia Appreciation

The Aquilegia is an amazing plant, so beautiful, so varied in their colouring, and flowers.  I love them and hope that one day there will be more in the garden.

  16. On Gardeners World last week they featured a woman who holds the national collection. She had some incredibly beautiful plants. I don't have any in my garden, but they are on the list for my next one!

  20. Lovely pics Amy - aquilegias are great plants, they seed themselves all over my garden making new colours where they get crossed by the bees. Have a lovely week.

  21. I've just planted my first aquilegia but thought it would have a huge bloom from the pic on the packet....I really need to read the sizes don't I...? Still if it comes up it will be a purple one and purple if a fave!
