Just When I Think They Are Done - They Surprise Me

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

My front garden is full of fun plants this year.

 

One of my favorites is the beautiful Columbine flower.

 

You can see my little Gnome in the back trying to peer out from all the foliage.  He keeps a close eye on everything.

 

The Columbine plant is a perennial and is perfect for our Colorado climate.  It comes back every spring and delights me with new blooms.  Typically they don't bloom much after July, but these guys just aren't done yet.

I love how they grow wild in the Colorado Mountains and surprise us all the time.

Thanks Joe Pryor .  Colorado has some license plates with Columbines on them after the Columbine High School shootings.  They say Respect Life on them.

Hi Belinda - We're going to plant some Columbines too - it wouldn't be a Colorado garden without them. Have a great weekend!
