Purple Columbine

Columbine is an early Summer flowering plant. One of the easiest parennials to grow with delightful, interesting flower shape. Columbine have 5 spurs that contain nectar. There are many plants that have nectar in the spur. However, while familiar plants like impatiens, violets, and larkspurs are limited to just one spur per flower, columbines are set apart by having five of them.

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Luke 12:27

How lovely!

Sigh. I love that verse of encouragement and hope. Despite my spinning and spinning, laboring and toiling...the Lord seeks to provide for me out of his own hand. I'll rest in that today.

Love you!!!!
