What's my name?

Kevin weeded our front garden over the weekend so I felt inspired this afternoon to take some photos of the plants that are currently flowering. This photo is the one I liked best, although I don’t know what the plant is called. One of my adult pupils did tell me their name the other day but I forgot it almost immediately – my memory for musical terms evidently doesn’t stretch to plant names!

marjoriecat I think it's aquilegia, also known as alpine columbine (there's a very similar photo on http://www.gardenersworld.com/plant-detail/PL00000338/58/alpine-columbine They are really pretty plants, and one of those that self set which are the kind I like best.

kay hooker Agree, this is Aquilegia and they come in many colours. The seed was scattered in your front garden last year! They are sometimes Granny Bonnets.

????? Nice pictures.
Yes, It's Aquilegia... If you cut the dead flowers, the plant will produce more and more.
I have some of them, even some poisonous :S
And aquilegia are perfect for butterflies!
