The Columbine that is Native to Minnesota is Aquilegia canadensis. The five upside down red tubes form the bell shape. These plants show up at will on the edge of the woods and in the wildflower gardens.
Columbine in bud.
Right next door is a bloomer.
Red and yellow perfect together colors if you ask me.
Hummingbirds like this plant.
We had one lone Hummer it kept coming into the yard looking for food. When I had the Oriole feeder up it helped itself to the orange. Now that the Orioles are gone…I felt sorry for the poor little thing.
One day in the hardware store I saw this little feeder prefilled with hummer juice. I figured it was worth a try. I suppose I will have to boil up some sugar water now.
I will also try for a better photograph!
