    Hi Maggie, how pretty this is and the dark violet background is just sooooo lovely and is an excellent contrast to those white petals…. very lovely indeed.

  • Thanks, Katherine. This one had been sitting in my ‘pending posting’ file for about six months.

    adore the tones in this one and you left it on your hard drive! Glad you finally uploaded it Maggie, it’s gorgeous

  • Oh, thanks, Sarah! I had done so many aquilegia blooms last year which is why this one got forgotten about.
