Colorado Columbine

The Colorado Columbine (Aquilegia ceorulea) grows in meadows, woodlands, rocks, scree from June to August. It is also Colorado's state flower.

The summer of 2011 has been a banner year for Columbine in Summit County. A clear cut field near my condo has had Columbine so thick you need a machete to get through them all.

Beautiful shots Sylvia, I'm so jealous as I didn't get any photos of the columbine while I was briefly in the Rocky Mts in Aug., tho I did see them.
