Another look at aquilegias

As more aquilegias open, a wander round the garden is exciting because every one is unique. No matter what colour they were supposed to be, there are surprises, the result of growing open-pollinated plants from seed rather than carefully pollinated F1 hybrids.

I posted on them last week and mentioned the new disease – Aquilegia downy mildew – you can see that post here –

But for now, just more photos.
