The garden is mostly green right now and there are not too many blooms, but many-many buds.
These beauties are putting their delicate flowers in the middle of the lush green.
This is pink Nora Barlow.
It's so easy to keep in the garden as it will self seed and I needed to take some out and give them to other gardeners, there were so many of them!
Among those self-seeded babies, I had this new hybrid surprise :)
Isn't this any keen gardener's dream?
Notice the difference between the aquilegia above and the one below?
Yes, this newer one has little trumpets, while the mother-plant does not.
Also, notice the last-standing Angelique tulips in the background.
And this is black Nora Barlow (yes, I like this Barlow kind a lot!).
And here is its surprise baby - another hybrid, this time an aquilegia with a single row of petals.
I must confess I like the mother-plant better in this case.
