Happy St. Patrick's Day! Obviously this is not a shamrock, but it is green. It is a leaf of Aquilegia canadensis, red columbine (blossoms are red and yellow), that grows wild in my garden. By wild, I mean that it showed up on its own and reseeds prolifically, so it pops up in interesting places without any help from me. This image was taken as slanting rays of the rising sun lit the dewdrops. Columbine are hardy perennials, with tap roots that allow survival during dry conditions. They also like partial shade, which might be problematic this year--last year we had a large tree removed and the garden and I are adjusting to increased light levels.
Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.
