  1. I’ve never seen white columbines before. There has been a batch of red columbines growing wild near the storm water pond on my place for the past couple of years, but I haven’t seen them this year (in spite of searching!). I found some down the road though, so maybe I’ll have them here again.

    The disguised bird poo is a great strategy to survive. Hehehe. And ooohhh I love those Japanese irises. :)
