Dandelion Seed Heads

I know most gardeners hate this 'weed'. I let mine grow, they are so cheerful and so beautiful when the flower head becomes a seed head, each seed born on the wind like little parachutes.

Another colour.

A beautiful deep colour in contrast to the paler ones.

Wild Aquilegia

I did have at least two cultivated varieties but over the years they have seeded with my wild ones.

Aquilegia (columbine) is a genus of about 60-70 species of herbaceous perennial plants that are found in meadows, woodlands, and at higher altitudes throughout the Northern Hemisphere. They are known for their distinctive flowers, generally bell-shaped, with each petal modified into an elongated nectar spur. Its fruit takes the form of a follicle.
Several species are grown in gardens, including Aquilegia vulgaris (European Columbine), a traditional garden flower in many parts of the world[1]. Numerous hybrids have also been developed as well. They are easy to propagate from seed.
They are used as food plants by some Lepidoptera species including Cabbage Moth, Dot Moth, The Engrailed and Mouse Moth.
