41 Day 109 – Aquilegias Better known as Grannys Bonnet!

I seem to have a bit of a thing for flowers at the moment. I wonder whether its because for many months now we in the UK have been somewhat deprived of anything remotely bright and colourful. January and February can be such grey months although we do get the occasional sunny day, until the first snowdrops appear and then the first daffodils trumpet the arrival of Spring we live with bare branches and salt sprayed verges. So, my garden is leaping into action, the bluebells, azaleas and these gorgeous aquilegias. You dont get to see the best part of this flower as it hangs its head low like a bell, funnily enough they are also known as Grannys Bonnet or Columbine,  so I have tried to take a photo of the best bit, by laying on the grass and aiming skyward!
