Columbine, a Favorite!

This beautiful Columbine was given to us from our neighbor and fits right into our wild backyard sanctuary. It is sometimes mistaken for Honeysuckle because when biting off it’s long spurs you can suck out the nectar. It’s a favorite for hummingbirds and long-tongued moths.  I love the coloring of this plant and I’ll look forward to it coming back many springs in the future.

    Gorgeous flower! Love the red pop! Maybe we’ll be seeing some hummingbird and long-tongued moths captures in a future post? Hope so!

    I would love to be able to get a hummingbird getting nectar from this flower if ever they would get here. Keep your fingers crossed.
