A year ago, I was cursing (not really) the columbine plants that have become almost invasive in my flower beds. I bought a few plants several years ago and they are now everywhere! They aren't the stately columbine variety that grows at my mother's, but are smaller. Their flowers just didn't seem very pretty, either. Well, this year, I've changed my mind. They are blooming now, in a wonderful variety of colors. There's even a white one that looks pleated. I've chosen columbine blossoms for Tuesday Muse.
