"Flowers are words that even a Babe can understand." - Patrick O'Keefe.

From Rambles from my Chair

This beautiful flower was out in the rockery today. I don't know what it is but I'd love to have some in my garden.


  1. Gorgeous flower. We have something similar, but I think smaller (hard to tell) called bluebells.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion ME. We have a flower called Bluebells - sometimes they carpet the woods in Spring but this isn't our 'Bluebells'. Interestingly the Bluebell in England (proper name Hyacinthoides non-scripta, syn. Endymion non-scriptum, Scilla non-scripta) is not the same flower as the Bluebell in Scotland (Campanula rotundifolia) which is called the Harebell in England. Names are so confusing.

  3. Names... a rose by any other etc.
    This is a pretty little flower, and looks so delicate. As for it's name, can't help you there. I am sure some one in a garden centre could tell from the photo, as you have captured it so well.

    Love Granny

  4. They look like aquilegia (columbine) to me. Beautiful colour.

  5. I can't believe that you don't know what it is, but I'd be willing to say that you are searching it out...hahaha.

    Brilliant color!

  6. Of course, thank you Helen. I'm used to my Aquilegias being 2 foot tall not four inches tall - it's the Hebridean wind! I blame everything on the wind - it obviously blows things out my mind as well! As for the colour, mine are wishy washy things of a vaguely pink colour - GB's is truly beauiful.

  7. I have no idea what it is, but it's stunning.

  8. Oh, if only something like this would grow in Florida! The shape and color of the bloom is just gorgeous!!! The leaves are so interesting too!
