Columbines on Leidy Peak






A few weeks ago we hiked up high to get this wonderful view and admire all the wildflowers. Sometimes exertion is worth it. Nature's garden is my favorite but I do enjoy manicured gardens as well. To enjoy an infinite variety of blooms from all around the world, check out Today's Flowers and celebrate its first anniversary!

I've never seen these outside of a garden, so this is a revelation. As always, the wild variety is sweeter than the bigger cultivated one.
