Closed Columbine

One of the many benefits of living in the middle of the woods is the variety of flowers that just pop up in various places. It’s not like with a garden when you know that you planted pansies along the border and you have Salvia in the back. When you live in the woods everything is a surprise. One of favorite things to do in the spring is go out and look for columbines. They are so delicate and intriguing. At the tip of each section is a little bulb. I remember years ago my husband’s Aunt showed me that if you put that tip in your mouth that you could taste a tiny bit of honey – somewhat like a honeysuckle. I don’t know that I really think it tastes like that but it doesn’t stop me from always trying. This photo is actually from a columbine plant that a friend gave me. The wild columbine’s in my woods are orange but this one is suce a beautiful shad of pink. I thought it was lovely.
