Haha! Made you look, didn't I? Well take a look at this pic, and tell me that you don't think this flower looks like it might have come from outerspace!
Finally, my columbine (aquilegia) is blooming, and although it may have come from space, right now it is enjoying the summer in the Tangled Forest in my backyard. And blooming for the first time ever, now that the deer have stopped repeatedly munching it down to nothing. (I now have a fence!) In fact, many of the plants that I had previously tried to grow to no avail, are now doing well. I can hardly wait for all of them to bloom.
