Every Spring Boomer hopes her wee little columbine plants will bloom, and up until this year, they never did. Pookie and I would roll our eyes and mutter lots of, “That’s nice, Boomer” every time she talked about them, then we’d forget all about them. So color us shocked when, early this past week, she said, “Be sure to check out the columbines — they’re blooming!”
Of course, the columbines have been planted in a weird little nook at the back of the house, so we have to go out of our way to see them. We’re not very smart, so it took us a really long time to realize that one way to enjoy the lovely flowers would be to cut them and put them in a vase inside. It’s like a whole new world has opened up for us!
So here are Boomer’s columbines, and a bit of fun with our new camera.
