First Blooms

Sure, the trees have been blooming for awhile now and the tulips and daffodils in the neighborhood soon followed. But I haven't planted any bulbs yet (that will come once we move to our own home) so the title of "first bloom of the year" goes to my Origami Red & White Columbine.



I don't know why I never noticed these flowers before moving here, but I absolutely love them! The blooms are gorgeous in any color and the long graceful spurs just and a touch of the unusual that attracts me to certain flowers over others.


This bloom is just the first of many. There are many more just beginning to open. I want to have a big patch of the native Rocky Mountain Columbine (the Colorado state flower) once we are established in our own place (which looks like it is at least another year away).
