There are still two plants of this wonderful "flowers of home" Columbine. Mother started them from seed at Tumwater. It was during this time that she dreamed of having lilies, which were much too expensive for her tight run budget. She started those from seed as well.
Anyway, I smile each time I see this pink come into bloom and marvel at it's endurance. Most of all, though, I love the sweet remembrance of the hands that planted the seed.
