The pollen is out in full force now, and it didn't take long for those little yellow balls to cover the camera lens with a fine layer.
Not too overly impressed by this, I snapped a few quick shots of the beautiful Purple Columbine in the garden.
These beauties have been coming back for many years - always the deep purple with the white centers.
Well, in another garden across the yard, I now have a patch of these growing - and I didn't plant them there.
One of the birds to my feeders must have done the job for me.
And the ones growing in the new area are all one color - an even deeper purple than the ones pictured above.
It makes me wonder if they were brought from a neighbor's garden, or if the seeds were hybrid and were going back to their original genes.
Guess I'll never know, but I wonder what next spring will bring for these pretty Columbines.
