At the moment clouds of columbines (from the latin word for pigeon, columba) are dancing all over the garden. Very lively flowers, wrinkling and curling and unfolding into real beauties.
Botanical name : Aquilegia, from the latin word for eagle, aquila ; the shape of the flower petals are said to resemble an eagle's claw. That may be so, but in my garden pretty doves are having a ball.

After watering the plants in the greenhouse and doing my tour around the garden I drank coffee outside.
Ideal way to wake up .
Energized by sunlight and gardenperfume I started a new canvas.

The garden is more beautiful everyday. Many lovely blue at the moment. Over the years I've planted and sown numerous blue flowers, just adore that colour.
This is a (very glossy) print of a header I used here some time ago. A photo collage of a gouache and a photo I made. Someone suggested to get it printed , so I gave it a try.
