Wow...what an amazing capture of these most delicate and beautiful columbines. I love the green glow on the bark. #1470944

Thanks Michelle. I almost missed seeing the columbines this year because they came several weeks early. Fortunately, there were a few still blooming though most were past their prime. #10197743
