My 300th Post!!!!!!!




How fitting that I should welcome this year's Columbine perennial as I also notice that this is my 300th post! Seriously, I thought I pulled the Columbine out last year thinking it was a weed. A master gardener, I am not. But, taa daa, she has arrived in all her graceful glory. I will be watching this sleek stem over the next few days to she how she flourishes.
300 posts!!! YIKES, who knew???

Congratulations Amy!
I still have a long way to go before I hit 300 posts!
Lovely flower. I am in a hurry these days trying to take pictures of spring flowers before they wilt!

Best wishes,
Anna

Thank you Anna...I don't pay a whole lot of attention to the stats, but this one was notable...the flower is just so amazing, delicate, angel-like...would love to see your pics!!!

Thank you Kathy!!!...time stands still for no woman!! I am in love w/ this flower...and it is different, so far, than the flower of the same stem from a couple of years ago!!

Yes, Secondary Roads...the flower, the 300th post...it is all good, a blessing!!!!

The next 300 Heather...YIKES!!...the Columbine is tiny, delicate, like a little ballerina w/ angel wings...I'm in-love...you too, have a wonderful week dear Gal!!

Thank you so much Lydia!!!!

Well done Amy ... it is lovely each time a blogger manages to hit one of the hundreds!

I adore columbine. I was introduced to it many years ago and always thought it had a look of the exotic about it - so very regal the way it holds its head and its bonet. Sometimes you can come across these in the wild and there are also complex versions with extra skirts and an extreme array of mixed colours splashes. The original (of which you have a delightful specimen) are somehow more beautiful - probably because of their simplicity.

Thank you Polly...it is wonderful to see the different landmarks we reach as bloggers...I certainly had no clue, when starting all of this that a 300th post would be in my future!!!

The Columbine that I have photographed, has already fallen apart...the other buds were opening yesterday...they're TINY...I have seen pics on-line of the even more complicated version which you have described...these really do remind me of angels wings!!!
