I looked at ALL of them Pat, and they are all so very Beautiful! And this all happened while you were gone? I guess Benign Neglect has it's!
I know you don't neglect it my dear...Just kidding...It must have given you great solace to go into your lovely garden, after such a hard weekend. I find my garden a great comfort in so very many ways, as you know. I LOVE this time of year, as I know you do, too! Life Renewed....There is nothing like it.

Randall: also known as aquilegia started out here and maybe it was taken over in the Mayflower. The red and yellow one sounds like the original.
