We had a lovely thread showing our different daffodils, so I thought as there are so many different aquilegias we could share photos of the ones we have in our gardens.
I don't have any apart from these that have reverted to a fairly dull purple and all facing downwards, still gorgeous though...
I would love to see some of yours
Nice idea Mrs G.
I'll see what I can find on the PC later
If the rain holds off I'll take the camera out into the garden and see what we've got - most of mine are just opening
It's less wind I need for new photos. It's all thrashing about out there.
I've got some from last year though
I also have one that's a bought one this year but it's not open yet. \lokk forward to seeing yours Nut and Dove.
I've got some new Touchwood ones but they haven't been photographed yet
Here is my cream Mckanna Hybrid from last year. I have 3 in total but 2 didn not flower last year.
I cant wait to see what colour they are! I'll post a few pics when they do
Here's one of mine:
No idea what variety, sorry! They are BIG flowers though
The other two I planted last year haven't come up this year
Looks like a Mckanna too Panda
The leaves and flower shape of the second two suggest they've got some A. viridiflora in them
Here are a few from other years - I'll add some current ones when the weather improves!
Lovee them all but especially the blue and the white from bob.
I don't know the names of the different varieties, can you lovely lot let me in on the secret or shall I look it up?
They get so mixed up that most of them don't have names Mrs G
McKana are long spurred hybrids as in Bob's picture, there are a lot of different ones.
A. caerulea is a species, very pretty.
The middle one of mine is probably a cross between two species, A. vulgaris and A. viridiflora
So vulgaris are fat common ones, with mini spurrs?
Mckanna brighter with long fancy spurrs?
Hybrid, Caerulea and viridiflora ?
All new to me. I did do a fair bit of googling but nothing that made sense
I think they're McKana. Several others budding, will post when flower.
Last pic is gorgeous yarrow.
That's very kind MrsGarden. I'm a bit hit or miss with the lens to be honest and really struggle to get close ups. When I do, I'm never sure what I did. I can't photograph anything really small...which really bugs me at the moment as I'd love to manage to get some close ups of little beasties one of these days.
Know what you mean. Today was my first attempt beyond point and shoot. Green icon, gold icon and scene something icon is all I can say! They all looke dthe same to me!!!
These are mine I especially love the last one, no clue what their names are though . I love the ones in the first picture of Nutcutlet's; those are gorgeous that dark blue.. Sorry for my horrible spelling.
I love your fourth one down GirlfromBelgium, I suppose it loses the yellow as the flower opens?
