The skies are grey today, but there's a little cloud of fire at our doorstep:
This wild columbine gets bigger and more beautiful every year. I didn't plant it; it must have been the gift of the wind.
Some of its more fanciful names include Rock Bells, Cluckies, Jack-in-Trousers...
...Wild Honeysuckle, Granny's Bonnets, Dancing Fairies.
I think they look like little jesters' hats.
