Wild Western Columbine

As we were planting the "Honeycrisp" apple tree on Sunday, we noticed a nice group of wild columbine not too far away. We have Aquilegia Formosa - the Western columbine - sprinkled throughout our meadows but sadly they are a favorite of the deer. This clump was no different. Of the 4 plants the deer had browsed off the tops of three of them. But this lovely one had survived the deer visits and was glowing in the sunshine.
