  11. 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!)
