wild columbine

the genuine wild columbine (aquilegia vulgaris), growing in a damp shady wood. Usually if you find an aquliegia it is a garden escapee. The flower is mysteriously complicated and exotic, with five long nectar horns

Oh, your columbine is gorgeous. I wish I could grow them here, but they surrender to the heat and die after a while.
Thank you for the comment on my lilies. They are beautiful and so fragrant.
