Oh!!!! Karen that is beautiful. I've never seen a double columbine (I guess that's what you'd call it). Absolutely gorgeous -- love the color as well.

And the quote -- just reading it makes me happy! This is why I take pictures and why I look at blogs. (I just didn't know it until I read that!)

love it Karen. You and I both seem to have this thing for columbine at the moment.

Aren't they just the most gorgeous flowers to photograph.
